Verizon has apparently decided that BOTH of my forwarding addresses, firstname.lastname@example.org and Daniel_Burrows@alumni.brown.edu, are actually spammers, and is randomly rejecting some emails sent to them. I have given Verizon as large a piece of my mind as they allow: they do not provide an email address, and instead put up a form where they graciously allow you to type a 70-character message. This will presumably go straight into the bitbucket, but we'll see.
If you want to email me, please send mail directly to Daniel_Burrows@verizon.net.
Does anyone know of a broadband ISP serving Redmond that doesn't suck? As far as I know, my only alternative to the telephone monopoly is the cable monopoly.
