It's come to my attention that emails including URLs from bentopress.com (like the one in my standard email signature) are being treated as spam and/or viruses by some providers (notably GoDaddy). I've talked with my ISP and they say the problem is that "GoDaddy's filters reject any messages containing an URL that resolves to an IP address in the PBL (a spam blacklist)." I believe that the problem IP address is with dotster.com (my registrar and forwarder) rather than spiritone.com (my ISP).

I'm in the process of moving bentopress.com's registration and forwarding from dotster.com, whose customer support is worse than clueless, to my main ISP spiritone.com, which I hope will resolve the problem. It might take a few days for the change to propagate around the net. Until then, be aware that emails from me or Kate may be marked as spam or viruses, even though they're no such thing.

Currently kate (at) bentopress (dot) com is not working. Trying to fix. Fixed.

Also, can anyone recommend a good registrar? (Do not want: dotster.com nor godaddy.com.)

ETA: Thanks for the recommendations! I finally settled on Moniker.com, which got excellent reviews for customer service, has a clean UI, and specializes in REGISTRATION (which is what I needed) rather than hosting and all those other related services.
