I mentioned this the other day. But you're still showing being posted to 
gmane.spam.detected, Hans :-o And yes, gmame's filter is pretty stupid 
in this case. I've tried sorting a couple of admin things with them and 
they have always been less than helpful unfortunately. I hope you have 
better luck.
