you are right. Let's keep talkin' about kangaroo burgers or beer. Maybe this is more efficient than letting the list owner know, that it is getting worse.

I don't think the 'list owner' doesn't deserve this. There is no reason to be cynical, sending 'congratulations'.

There is no such thing as a list 'owner', just a 'list admin'. He is volunteering in doing so, and we all have our profit., as the name says, does this for free (at least, I'm not paying for this, and I think you ain't either). We are very lucky to be able to generate this much traffic on their systems. They are not generating these duplicates intentionally. The list admin, Steve Adams, obviously pointed the admins of to this issue. I'm convinced they are doing their best to solve this problem, not in the last place because this is costing bandwith to them too. I'd suggest we do not start a huge thread about 'Duplicate Postings'. It won't help, on the contrary, it will only make the whole thing worse.

Best regards, Carel-Jan Engel

Hi All,

The very helpful staff at freelists having been working on this problem for

us since the last incident. As yet, we do not know what causes it. If it

continues, please try to be patient. They are working on it.

@ Regards,

I just sent an email to the list-admin regarding this issue.
