Dear All,

a subscriber of our list just informed me that my previous message,
containing the normal abbreviation FU for Finno-Ugric in the subject line,
almost got deleted by her anti-spam software -- spam filters fighting porn
junkmail are getting more and more sensitive for all variations of the
notorious Anglo-Saxon "F-U-" word. So -- think twice before you abbreviate!

Subject for a new terminological discussion?

your own spam filter (you can't imagine how much disgusting junkmail for the
URA-LIST I delete every day)
