At this point, my guess is something in your message is causing it
to be spam filtered at the receiving end (lists.mailscanner.info).
Although if that's the case, I can't explain why this one got

Here's the regexp I'm using

/\bwww(?:\[dot\]|[ \-+_.]+)\w+\.?(?:\[dot\]|[ \-+_])[ _\-+.]*[a-z]{2,4}\b/i

It gets all the above and the original ones too. It is not hard to
make up 'valid' domains that this regexp will match, but in practice
I haven't seen any FPs.
