230Re: Scadbury Archaeology Open Day - next weekend
- Sep 10, 2009Dear Edmund,
Your email was not so much a victim of Yahoo anti-spam but of Yahoo! groups potential spam. Any messages thus marked are held for approval by the moderator, i.e. me - and I very rarely check the group unless something is flagged for my attention, which this wasn't. I only found out about it by chance.
Edmund, I am sorry if I was not able to get your message posted in time. I see this has caused distress to you and would like to assure you that no malicious intent was intended.
Obviously, I should check for similar emails more often from now on and not wait for any messgae from Yahoo.
With Best Wishes
