Aapt, my service provider, has been doing something mysterious to my emails over the past three months or so. I am getting too many reports of emails going awol, either not being received my end or disappearing into the ether after I write them. And that's only the emails I hear about. For the moment, while I ponder the hideous possibility of changing my email address, I suggest that those who are suffering an unexpected radio silence should cc their emails to ajcroggon at gmail dot com. And apologies to anyone I may have unintentionally snubbed; it's not me, it's the software. Or something.
