News & Info,
E-mail sent to any of our email addresses between 11AM (eastern Standard Time) June 20th and 2AM June 21st may have been lost.
The reason for this is that our web hosting provider's backbone provider is listed on the Open Relay Behavious-modification System (ORBS) a list of spam abusers. Whatever the reason for this it caused us a serious problem today as our e-mail server to which all animenewsnetwork email is forwarded rejected all our mail during the period.
The problem has been fixed, and hopefully we will not have any more difficulties such as this in the future. In the past half hour we have re-received some of the e-mails sent to us yesterday, however we fear that we may not receive them all.
On behalf of myself and Cookie I apologize for the inconvenience, but if you sent any email to us, would you be so kind as to re-send it?
Thank you for understanding;
