Gmail / Google CENSORING Email?

Gmail's anti-spam bots are effectively censoring my outgoing email!

My outgoing email, being sent by me FROM my own Gmail account, is being BLOCKED from being sent... by Google / Gmail itself!

It doesn't happen to EVERY message I send. It seems to be sort of random, but... Here is what I get:

Message rejected. See [mail.google.com...] for more information.

It seems somewhat random, but I cannot be sure...

Sometimes when I completely change all the TEXT of the email, it will suddenly go through... Whereas, before changing the text, it consistently would not go through.

This leads me to believe that they are filtering for certain specific WORDS in my outgoing email..... Like PG-17 words, and some other words, like the word "spam".

This does NOT happen to anyone else I know.... It's as if Google / Gmail has TARGETED me.... (and some others complaining of this same problem in the Gmail Help Forums)!

.....but Apparently, Google cannot be bothered to answer ANYONE'S questions..... about ANYTHING..... EVER.

Do you send a high volume of emails from your Google mail account. Perhaps this is what triggers the action on your account. Do you often include Links in your outgoing mail. This might have something to do with it?

No! I did NOT send out a high volume of emails.

No! Although I sometimes include a link in an email (Who Doesnt'!?) At least HALF of the emails that are blocked by Google/Gmail do NOT contain links.
