Murphy's law.  The news swerver I read from has stopped getting any
new articles after about three bestweb regurgitations, which I didn't
realize until just now, so there was plenty of activity since 3am
local time that I missed.

Sorry about restating the obvious.  All news swervers suck, some more
than others...

message regurgitation from bestweb.net, not me...

2002-02-11 Thread BOUWSMA Beery


In case anyone else hasn't figured out why you're seeing a few old
messages, it looks like there's a mailer at bestweb.net that's
re-sending the mails it has queued up but using the `To:' header
field for the new recipient, so that mails from several days ago
are appearing again.  It's not me and others forgetting and resending
old mails.  Here's a second copy of a message someone sent me:

Feb 12 08:09:40 dastardly sendmail[277]: g1C79dU00277: from=[EMAIL PROTECTED],
size=1169, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=[EMAIL PROTECTED]
et, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=newman2.bestweb.net [209.94.102.67]

Note that the messages sent to the list have a different msgid than the
originals and are all [EMAIL PROTECTED] .

I read this list via usenet, so here's relevant headers from a post
that ``I'' just made:

Original-Date: Wed, 6 Feb 2002 16:03:16 +0100 (CET)
From: BOUWSMA Beery [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Subject: Lock order reversals, login-related, maybe...
Original-Message-Id: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Date: Tue, 12 Feb 2002 02:33:19 GMT
Message-ID: [EMAIL PROTECTED]

I see a few other messages others have ``sent'' today too.


Hope this helps if anyone's confused by this and ready to direct a
flamethrower at the apparent perpetrator.
