This would connote that a surreptitious interception is taking place!
All email in support of the game that I receive have the following
source associated with them. The specific server name @ earthlink
varies, but this looks like a spoon discuss bounce (last recipient first).
Return-Path: <spoon-discuss-bounces@xxxxxxxxx>
Received: from ([])

Delivered-To: spoon-discuss@xxxxxxxxx
An intervening machine should stamp the message similarly.
Why, then, only Antonio's being held up?
BTW, I called earthlink. 28 minutes on hold and I was disconnected
before being switched to a human being. F that.
