Well, the posts I receive double of weren't replies to any of my posts.
The last message crackers posted was one of the ones I received double of.
It's happened before though, so I'm not sure what the problem is.  Hmm,
perhaps there's a quirk in the mail system between and my site
so mail accidentally gets doubled.  It's not a really big deal as I can
just hit delete again, but I posted just in case it's something wrong with
the way the stella list is configured.  Not all of the mail from stella
gets doubled, only a message or two every once in a while.
