You're the first to mention it about Antigen. I usually get 'bad word
filter' messages from a bunch of schools when I mention "127.x.x.x/8" or
the like.

If you check one of the bounces you should be able to see if its
directly to you or through the list. Anything like this going through
the list needs reporting to

Mails you send to the list have you as the sender. One of the other list
members is behind an annoying 'bad words' filter.

You should try to let them know its broken. Or worst-case respond in
kind by blocking their email to you.


Please use Squid 2.6.STABLE19 or 3.0.STABLE4
