Some places block e-mail from internet sites because they
have bad (or no) policies about the abuse of internet e-mail
(read: SPAM) or are known to harbour spammers.  If your
ISP is blocking your e-mail based on content (as some people
have suggested), then I urge you to immediately switch
providers and tell your current provider that you switched
because you had originally contracted with them for access
to the *entire* Internet and not just a portion of it.  Any
provider blocking sites without giving you a choice in it
is guilty of content regulation and have opened themselves
up to litigation if someone sees something they don't like.
However, if they act just as a carrier, then they can
make the argument that they only carry the data, but make
no distinction as to what the data is.  (Remember, however,

As far as I know, the Merry Rose is lucky in that it has
never been blocked by anyone.  If this is not the case,
someone please let me know about it so I can work it out.
