Would that be a message that you originate from an ampr.org
hostid, Maiko?

There was a time, a few years ago, when winlink.org did not
accept incoming email from the ampr.org domain.  At the time,
I found that to be very strange.

This directly led to an email discussion between myself and
one of the developers of Winlink, whose name escapes me at
the moment.  I believe that the final result of our discussion
was that they opened up incoming email from ampr.org but they
cautioned me that if any spam started originating from ampr.org
to winlink.org, they would shut it down as fast as they opened
it up.

I found *that* to be very humorous.
