AOL blocks e-mails with links to anti-AOL protest site

FYI, AOL says it was a mistake:
http://news.com.com/2100-1030_3-6061089.html

But unless they've changed their filters, perhaps this Politech message 
will be blocked if I include a link to the protest site:
http://www.dearaol.com/

AOL's terms of service have always said they COULD block email which was
"injurious to AOL".

Today is the day, apparently.  AOL is reportedly blocking emails
containing links to the site protesting AOL's email tax.
