hi everyone!

just fyi, the amount of spam in the moderation queues has risen to such 
an extent that the server admin, douglas repetto of columbia university, 
has implemented an auto-clear function for the queues.

that means: if your message is not forwarded to the list, it will be 
dead, gone and forgotten. this happens either if you are using a 
non-subscribed address to post (regardless of whether you are subscribed 
with another account, even if it's in the same domain, i.e. if 
j at example.com is legitimate, j at dork.example.com will bounce), or if 
mailman determines you are posting html.

due to a misunderstanding, this auto-nuking has been active on 
linux-audio-announce as well for the past couple of days. so if you 
tried to get an announcement out, please resend - the old one went 
straight to the bit bucket.

if you are a free (as in "free speech") software developer
and you happen to be travelling near my home, drop me a line
and come round for a free (as in "free beer") beer. :-D
