    Wolfgang Koeberer, you wrote:

    Yep, it's called meta-discussion, and it can be deadly for a  list
    (http://www.fitz-claridge.com/node/18). Unfortunately, in this case, there  have IN FACT
    been real problems with the list. Messages have failed to  distribute.
    Messages from months ago have been re-distributed. The entire list  shut down for a
    while. The irbs archive address and one member of long-standing  were bounced
    from the list for no apparent reason. These problems are  intermittent, so if
    you don't follow the list on a daily basis, you might  believe that they are
    The one reply to the list (as of this  writing) in the past 48 hours that is
    about navigation is extremely welcome, but  ironically it's a reply to a
    message that was sent four months ago and somehow  the list sent out a duplicate
    copy of it last week. That's a REAL bug,  intermittent though it may be.
    And you wrote:
    "Instead messages to the  "world" are being sent and responded to by real
    people like Pavlov's  dog."
    Sorry about that. That was my fault. I sent a test message ONLY to  see if I
    would get a copy. I didn't need replies, and I should have said that in  the
    message. But thanks to everyone who DID reply --I thought the replies were
    rather fun, in fact!
    OK. Enough meta-discussion for  me.
