[PD] [PD-announce] yahoo rejecting pd-posts

I'd be happy to take this opportunity to find a better email service provider than Yahoo. But there isn't a viable alternative outside of riseup.net (which wants me to pledge my opposition to a "vanguard strategy for revolution" as a ToS, strongly implying that there is at least one moron there wielding an alarming amount of influence).
Any other free webmail is subject to the same or similar destructive policies, and universities don't accept outsiders. So it seems I'm stuck.

dear Pd junkies,
recently, yahoo (and later aol) has implemented a strict
spam-preventing scheme, that basically prevents mailinglists like
yours truly from doing their work .
this scheme basically disallows re-distribution of emails from people
you (esp. if you are using yahoo yourself, but gmail users might be
affected as well) might have noticed, that some mailing-list posts
have gone missing (esp. when originating from other yahoo users).
a possibly missing email can be found at .
this is *not* a hostile attempt from our side (your faithful iem-team)
to censor the mailinglist(s).
we are currently investigating ways to mitigate the problem , but
haven't found an acceptable /and/ working technical solution yet.
if possible, we would like to suggest all posters using
yahoo-addresses, to consider switching to another (free)mail-provider
- - if only for the purpose of posting emails to innocent mailinglists.
if we do not find a solution fast, we might be forced to *temporarily*
disable posting from yahoo-addresses (but will try avoid this step as
long as possible, and if forced to use it keep it as short as possible).
