I just sent out the July edition of my IBS email newsletter – just visit the IBS Tales homepage and fill in the box on the left side of the page to join up – and one of the things I wrote about was how difficult it is when you’re going through a bad IBS episode that involves constipation and hard stools and bottom-shredding bowel movements, because all of these things are so impossible to talk about in normal life and they leave you isolated and alone.
And I got this ‘your email is undeliverable’ message as one of my replies:
“A message you sent triggered a rule. Subject: ‘Sophie’s IBS newsletter July 2009′. The following 1 rule(s) were triggered: Rule ‘EMBC RULE – Block rude words in body’: [CONTENT: Message content contains ' rectum'].”
Ah, the delicious irony. Even the computers want me to pipe down.
