Interesting that I'm just now seeing this.  I didn't realize how many 
messages I was actually missing until they started coming in over the 
last four days... several hundred and still coming it looks like.

Kind of fun to relive a little history I guess though I did initially 
freak when the list traffic spiked. :)  One of the oddest mailing list 
quirks I've seen in a while.

No action required, just commiserating.
