Last Sunday I sent an important email to
(obviously not the real address). I didn't hear anything back and on
Wednesday, sent a follow-up message. I still didn't hear anything back.
I then checked my logs, and found the following (formatted for easy

Oh no … it's Gmail.
We've had issues at The Company with Gmail. Specifically, Gmail seems
intent upon classifying all email sent from The Company as spam. And seeing
how my website is being hosted by The Company, my guess is Gmail is

the spam folder, with no way of telling why it was sent there, or a
way to tell Gmail that I'm not a spammer.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
