My latest article, “Building Communities with Software,” was sent to email subscribers earlier today.

If you did not get it and expected to get it, you’re probably having problems with overenthusiastic spam filters. I got lots of bounces, mostly from Fortune 500 type companies, rejecting the message, because of “inappropriate content” or because their automatic filters had decided it was spam. Some of them complained about “taboo,” other’s complained about “hard core.” Most didn’t tell me. Such is the state of email today.

If you did not get the article and you want it, you can read a shorter, sanitized version online. But it still contains the word “taboo” so if that offends you you may want to avert your eyes!
