    Hi there,

    Just to inform that the "Filter suspicious query strings" feature breaks google analytics utm url leading to a 403 error. You should skip these or similar.

    Source: Google Analytics Direct URL Tags
    Example: http://www.example.com/?utm_source=phplist&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=(...)

    Regards.

    and i blamed suffusion! initially...
