Not sure it'd have helped. If I don't log into gmail's web interface and clean
out the spam false positives every couple weeks it'll bootstrap itself up from
"list moderator messages quote questionable bits, ban the periodic list
moderator messages" to "that's similar to list traffic" and it only takes a tiny
extra push to go _really_ septic. In this case, Kees Cook has all of his
messages show up in the spam filter (still! no matter how many I mark not spam)
because his chromium.org mx DNS record insists on some verification step his
mail client isn't doing, and it doesn't take much to spread that to "all things
google are spam"...

I just need to remember to babysit gmail. It has the largest email base to feed
into spam finders, but it also does obvious things wrong and tends not to fix
them. (Gmail's https://landley.net/notes-2011.html#30-04-2011 issue from 7 years
ago is still the main reason I haven't put together a cannonical toybox list
history mbox file to feed back to dreamhost every time they break the web
archive: my copies are split between my outbox, my inbox, and the toybox folder
because of gmail's unwanted filtering. Half of cloud rot isn't good things going
away, it's when a service starts doing something you don't WANT it to and you
can't make it STOP...)
