    You guys aren't going to be able to do anything about this, but I thought it worth flagging. I have email subscriptions for all threads I post in, and lately Google has been binning some of them to my spam folder. The only pattern I can see is where the posts in the email contain a hotlinked image.

    Like I said, I doubt there's much you can do, so this is more of an FYI I guess. I rely on email notifications pretty heavily, especially for PMs.

    EDIT: Damnit, couldn't get all of the menu in the tags... Forum software clearly doesn't like tags like "Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam baked beans Spam Spam Spam and Spam" or "Lobster Thermidor aux crevettes with a Mornay sauce garnished with truffle pâté brandy and a fried egg on top and Spam".

    Let me see if I can remember/find any that I had to manually flag as "not spam".
