Re: [AV Media Matters] Spam filters from hell

I also object to this "spam." I called Victory Studios and was informed
that topica.com is on their spam list. I was assured that this would be
corrected. Apparently it is not. Viewing the source, the message was
originated by spam@victorystudios.com. I suggest that the moderator
contact Victory Studios and, if corrective action is not taken, remove
the offender @victorystudios.com.

There is no subscriber at victorystudios.com or at American production
services - I had already tried all the obvious solutions - I eventually
went through the entire list and tracked down the domain - APSNW.com and
that subscriber is no more. Let's see if that worked.
No promises....
