Okay, this is the last time I'm sending this.  Apparently neither
perl.org nor perl.com are accepting mail from rick@consumercontact.com
but I have no idea why since I don't even get a bounce.

I'm hoping it gets through from here, since I've posted to p5p from this
address a few times with no trouble.

If my difficulties are the result of a spam-filter, I'd seriously
question its sanity for accepting stuff from home.com and rejecting
stuff from a tiny domain like consumercontact.com.
