Not missing; they never went up.  I think that's an important

No, I don't believe that one yet.  If anyone can offer proof of
this, please email me directly with all the details, and I'll look
into it.  A couple people didn't see one email that I and others
DID see.  That's not a Biglist problem.  Another apparently bounced
back to the sender (though they didn't say why).  I've already
said what I think covers a missing post by another poster.

Considering that they're donating the list for no cost, I think we
can all understand that we'll not be a high priority.  But to say
they have no interest in fixing problems isn't true.  They just
have other things to work on -- like fixing issues from paying
customers.  All of this has come from a major upgrade, and the
paying customers got it first, and are STILL getting it.  We got
in when we did because the Stella server blew up; if not, we'd
still be on the old software.  In other words, they DID push us
ahead on the queue as an emergency case, though still not as
quickly as they would have if we paid.

Please don't take this as a knock against Thomas, or you, or
anyone else who's offered to host a list, but I think most to all
of us have other things in our lives that would practically
ASSURE that problems would get put off on any other list as well
as this one.
