That's because some admin for unitedwaydenver has some absurdly stupid spam 
filtering with simple single-phrase-match and block logic.

It probably bounced because the SF.net advertisement at the bottom included 
the phrase "share the love" thus the entire message was assumed to be porn 

Some people never learn :)
