Is there a web interface to report perl bugs?by chrestomanci (Priest)

chrestomanci has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
O wise ones, I seek your guidance in the veneration of the goddess Perl, and the removal of her few remaining defects.
In short, I am trying to submit a minor documentation bug against perl. I tried using perlbug, and sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and both resulted in a bounce:550-Your address 18.104.22.168 has mailed to spamtraps here
The problem is that the IP address above is not mine, but my ISP's outgoing mailserver. It looks like one of the thousands of customers of my fairly small ISP has sent spam to perl.org at some point over the years. Does that mean that I am locked out of submitting perl bugs unless I do so via a raw SMTP connection to perl.org?
(I did think I could use my gmail account instead, but if my small ISP is blocked, then what chance a big worldwide webmail service?)
Is there another way to submit bugs against perl? or is this some sort of test to prevent those who won't make an effort from submitting reports?
