[Discuss] unsubscribed by delivery bounces (Google)

Just fyi. meta discussion about the list.

My incoming mail, delivered by Google, apparently started bouncing this
morning - and caused me to be unsubscribed from the list.  It was easy to
re-activate my list subscription.  I'm just sending out this message
because it's strange and thought others might experience the same issue.

I'm subscribed using greg at, which forwards to my
greg.rundlett at address.  If I'm reading the transcript below
correctly, it looks like Google gave the notification message an SPF hard
fail because it didn't like an IP from  But, that confuses me
since I still received the notification and it was in my inbox, not my spam
