    My latest post was emailed back with two "from" fields: JP Software Forums
    and Steve Fábián. Also, a response to CSGalloway "Re: Date and Time in
    names" I posted by email several days ago, but only showed up a couple of
    hours ago.

    It was blocked by the anti-spam measures in the forum because you had
    embedded URLs in the text. I found it in the blocked list and released it a
    couple of hours ago.

    Why are URLs spam? How do we direct other NG readers to URLs? It is one
    thing to disguise our own email address (e.g., "at" instead of "@"), but
    URLs can be very long, and anything but pasting would be frought with
    errors.

    99.99% of the several thousand spam messages this board gets every day have embedded URLs. Less than 0.1% of the legitimate messages do, and even in those cases there's rarely a real need to do so.
