Hello, fellow posters:

only a small minority of those who subscribe actually post themselves. 
Recently a number of postings have been repeated almost verbatim. This is due
to the following message:

> Your message  is being returned to  you unprocessed because it  appears to
> have
> already  been  distributed to  the  ARSCLIST  list.  That  is, a  message 
> with
> identical text  (but possibly with different  mail headers) has been 
posted
> to
> the list  recently, either by  you or  by someone else.  If you have 
reason
> to
> resend this message to the list (for instance because you have been
notified
> of
> a hardware failure with loss of data),  please alter the text of the
message
> in

line
> or

sufficient;

----- when I post, I mostly see this message as a mail that arrives with the
posting that contradicts it--it has been processed after all. Perhaps in some
cases there is a delay between the two messages. For this reason I have 
decided to ignore it and hope for somebody with better knowledge and 
privileges to correct it at the server. So, prospective posters: please 
ignore the message and wait for your posting to ARSCLIST to appear. If it 
appears on your e-mail there is no reason to resend a slightly modified 
version.

Kind regards,


George
