I was wondering why my mail wasn't getting to the list...
I just got a response from my mail system that said:

OK, so I went to Spamcop. Seems that there is an *experimental* blocking system
there that somehow samples mail from specific servers. And apparently they
found 5 mails from whidbey.net that were identified as spam (though they got no
188.8.131.52 listed in bl.spamcop.net.
Rationale: Sample traffic over 1000 counted x .5 (1098); 5 spamtrap reports
multiply spam score from 5 to 25); Spam score 25.00: spam report ratio (0.023)
exceeds threshold (0.020)
Beta blacklist rules would block 184.108.40.206:

Spamcop says, in fact, *NOT* to use this service for production systems:
This blocking list is somewhat experimental and should not be used in a
production environment where legitimate email must be delivered. It is growing
more stable and is used by many large sites now. However, SpamCop is aggressive
and often errs on the side of blocking mail - users should be warned and given
information about how their mail is filtered. Ideally they should have a choice
of filtering options. Many mailservers can operate with blacklists in a "tag
only" mode, which is preferable in many situations.
So now what do I do? Does anyone have any way to get to theinternetone.net and
ask them to not blacklist me?
