Re: list messages

Very occasionally I wonder if I have missed a message when a thread is
developed and I don't remember seeing the beginning of it however it is
equally possible that I missed it because it did not seem of interest to me
at the outset and of course with the volumes of spam I might have
inadvertently deleted something I would otherwise have seen.
So far though I am not aware of receiving duplicates. Again there are often
multiple messages which look the same from different senders and there are a
lot of "me to" messages and a few subscribers who seem to need to add to
every thread, often several repetitions so I may just be deleting several
without reading them closely enough to recognize duplicates but so far as I
can tell I am not getting duplicates.

Seems to me the only list I ever get duplicates on is the K1000 list and
that was some time ago now. That wasn't duplicates either, commonly I would
receive a dozen or so of each all scattered in among the others so you were
afraid not to open each one to be able to follow any thread.

I recommend those receiving duplicates should keep in touch with the
moderator so he can get some handle on how big a problem it is. Only that
way can it be determined to be a list serve problem or a local ISP or
computer problem.

  Folks, you might want to check your connection cables and see if they need
  replacing. Sometimes a bad cable will cause delays and duplicates.
