We have already reported this problem to AOL but have no estimate on when it'll be fixed.

If you submitted a story to us for our Eighteenth Annual Halloween Ghost Story Contest and have not gotten a response back and have an AOL e-mail address, it's likely because the AOL Postmaster is currently bouncing all our e-mail messages.
