I emailed the address, got no response.  The email was in response to,
and support of, John Telek and his rant on video editting (support of
the frustration, not necessarily the rant).  And it was too early in the
thread for it to have been some automatic bounce from closing the thread

So it was either an automatic process gone wrong, hence the test post,
or it was silent censorship.  Or somewhere inbetween.

Of the bounce message?  Why that will illuminate anything?  A quick
glance at it looks pretty run-of-the-mill to me.
