Not just you Kat & John. I got the "dis-allowed domain" message
yesterday too, when I was trying to "unhold" my subscription for what
seems the umpteenth time. Since late Feb I've had my subscription
automatically put on hold repeatedly because at least 3 messages bounced
or couldn't be delivered. I've been in touch with Road Runner support
and with Eric. Seems Road Runner blocks the techwr-l messages as spam,
and Eric has gone to the Road Runner security page and doesn't see
anything he needs to do. The proverbial Catch 22. I know there are
other list members using Road Runner in other regions--have you been
experiencing this too?
