Censorsdhip ?

I sent a brief E-mail to a fellow Litizen; last night.
Off it went into the cyber void without a problem (I've been having trouble with my PC of late).
Imagine my surprise to get a message this morning:-


A message that you sent to the following recipient could not be delivered due to a permanent error. ** The remote server aa.bb.cc.dd responded with: ** [email - - /email] xxx:5.7.0 content and attachment content guidelines. 5si8131863wml.2 - gsmtp
This message was created automatically by mail delivery software on the server avasout01.


I don't know about you guys, but I call that CENSORSHIP and I am not keen.
The so-called 'guidelines' have not been revealed to me so far. . .

So where is this email server that scans emails for forbidden words or attachments?

Or are you sending naked pics of yourself to the Queen again?

Are you sending a zip file to a Gmail address, or something similar? Looks like that can cause the sort of bounce message you got: https://productforums.google.com/for...il/E98ES2fvO8c

My work email filter managed to flag a photo of two armchairs as suspected porn. They weren't even flesh-coloured.

It sounds to me like the recipient's email server rejected the email. Quite a few organizations (corporate, government) place limits on what their users can receive by email, but I've never heard of a rejection based on content.

Yahoo is a case of big brother is watching. When I would go back and forth with my editor I could send e-mails with explicit sex talk and with no issue.

However whenever discussing anything incest and using the words, brother sister mom int eh sex talk anytime I went to send one it would ask me to submit a code before I could send it.

So they were not only flagging, I think they were 'watching'

It wasn't a zip file. I think it was to a GMAIL address, but it was fewer that 30 words.

Hm, only thing I can think of is that Google mistook it for spam or phishing. The algorithms for spotting that stuff are better than they were, but still a long way from perfect.

Or more likely paying too much attention to the evils of porn when they're missing silly things like terrorist chatter.

Probably the servers your friend is using have filters that don't allow the content you're trying to send. Our Office has the same kind of filter installed and it gets a bit frustrating at times when it blocks external emails for nothing. I've used my own gmail account to receive those files.

But if they did that they would find themselves paying very much attention to a specific religious/ethnic group and that would look like profiling, never mind the simple fact that the same group is the largest source of terrorism.

Incorrect. The largest sources of terrorism is assholes of all ideologies. Xian terrorists blow up buildings, torch churches, shoot-up clinics and schools. Hindu terrorists burn mosques and mass-rape sectarian women. Suicide bombing was invented by Tamil separatists in Sri Lanka. Governments and propagandists broadcast fear to terrorize the populace. When you demonize a group, YOU are the terrorist.

Which shows this country has become so politically correct that we will lay down and die because we prefer it to offending some group.

Funny I have a friend from Pakistan and for years we had a running joke that he and his brother were a sleeper cell.

Last month out of the blue he says to me "You know I'm only kidding right? You don't tell anyone I say that do you?"

What a world.

I offend everyone, I don't play favorites.

From where I sit it seems to me all people are ethnocentric. Each of us belongs to a particular tribe. The problem is this: People forget America is a nation like all the others. My family tree includes most of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. But I'm Yankee Doodle Asshole.

I presume you're talking about "white right-wing Christians" there?
