Again, consider the distinction -- the posts are not "missing",
they simply have not been added to the archive.  The plan has always
been to add them, it's just taking a long time.  I agree that this
is frustrating, but I don't think it's worth leaving Biglist over.

How could it BE a Biglist problem if others have seen it?  Perhaps
someone else between your mail servers and Biglist's servers ate it,
but it simply can't be Biglist if others got it.  Unless you're
suggesting that there was a hiccup there in sending it, and only
part of the list got it?  I think that unlikely, but admit it's a
possibility.  But with an average of, what, five or so servers in
between, it's more likely it went into the ether in between.

I've never asked, since it's never really been a big issue.
