Ah, then in that case it likely is because I'm at a University, contrary to what I said in my reply. I'm unsure if my IP is hidden, but if it it it's likely to be because of the University. I guess it's not critical as I was still able to get in contact, and if there's been abuse or risk of abuse then it's understandable, at the site I frequent most a lot of things have been blocked off because the potential for abuse of similar things is high and they just had to blanket block a large chunk until they could sort things out.

But yes, thanks for the help. ^_^

Yeah, we have to be careful. If I lost control of things like this, major providers might block my domain from sending or receiving mail. I would hate, for example, to be blocked off from the entire Comcast, AOL, or Hotmail user networks because my domain was flagged as a spam haven. :)

Yeah. As I said, I understand, no webmaster can really afford that kind of mass blocking, it would be pretty crippling. =/ Well I sent my original link submission in the reply to your reply, so hopefully the long quest of trying to get it submitted and on your site is almost over. ^^

I do indeed have it. It will probably appear on the Links page in the next update. :)
