I heard it as the Lee Kee Boot Company
I can't imagine that they are both correct.

What clears up who is right. Thanks.

I have to assume that the person who told me either had an over-helpful
spell-checker or fat fingers. :-)

When I sat on the committee that decided what to filter in email at my
last place of employ, there were lots of earnest discussions about
such things. My take was that we should be filtering what went *out*
and allow all non-spam in. I lost.

They once bounced an email from my mother because it contained the
word "*******". No, it wasn't referring to me.


I remember someone once enquiring on an ISP's support group where their
email had been bounced. It turned out that it included the phrase "via
Gravesend", which a stupid spam filter had equated to "viagra".


I've seen that in reallife, except the phrase was "Via Graham".

Also, and I forget the trigger word, but reportedly a whole batch of
acceptance emails from one of the USA's Ivy League universities, to
successful applicants, were eaten en-route for a similar reason.

Reminds me of the old joke of which this is one variant:

Why are there no telephones in China?

There are so many Wings and Wongs that they are scared they will "wing
the wong number".

Virgin Media (or whatever they call their cable service) refused to pass

messages that had Sussex in the sender's address.


That's the S****horpe effect. I had a correspondent in Brussels whose
surname was de Cock, and that flummoxed a lot of filters. And the Country
Park north of Cambridge had its website blocked because it mentioned that
one of things to see there was "Big Tits".


um

why?

(does one go there to see big tits?)

Sorry, I scanned your post too fast and though you were talking about part
of the Science Park

I see my mistake now

Not big, great.

Size isn't everything
