I think I sent it ~20 times (with different SMTPs) but it never
made into, while my reply to "Crash with 2.8.5rel.1" made in
seconds. Go figure.

Update: According to Bob: "Regarding the messages that you've
sent recently:  Majordomo spots the word "subscr1be" and kicks
them out for approval. You can get past that by hyphenating the
word, like "sub-scribe"."

So, I changed all subscribe to subscr1be, including the above.
Silly ?

Anyway, it was just to mention that despite the quotes making
it look like I wrote the above, I didn't.

And "Please subscr1be as it saves a human being countless hours
of" ??? Does that mean it's moderated ? I thought Bela Lubkin
had sent an e-mail days ago that never made into.
