One Of Those Weeks

This morning, while going through hundreds of items relegated to the Junk Mail box of my email browser, I came across the following notification from one of Australia's 'big four' TV networks, Channel Ten. It was in response to a last-minute reminder about the opening of Porno I sent to Ten's Melbourne-based news editors, journalists and presenters. The subject line of Ten's notification read Profanities to undisclosed recipients.
It went on:
An email addressed to undisclosed-recipients sent Wed Jul 30 10:22:35 2008 has been blocked as it fails to satisfy Network Ten and Eye Corp's email policies. The email contains Profanity. If you have any further queries, please contact us at...
What else could I do but laugh? Now I'm being censored by prudish mail server 'bots. The only questionable words I could find in the original email were the title of the show and, oh yes, 'sex'.
