        Subject: postings that vanish

Dear colleagues,

I'm aware that some postings to Humanist simply vanish, filtered out 
by misbehaving software before they reach me. In a few cases members who 
have posted them write to me, but I suspect that there are others I never 
hear about. Each time I find out that a message has disappeared, I let 
those here who watch over the software know. They are continuing
to look into the problem. 

Meanwhile, if you send a posting and don't see it within a day or so, 
please let me know by sending it directly to my address, 

In the three decades I've been editor of Humanist, I have almost never 
censored a posting. Indeed, I could number these on the fingers of one hand. 
When I have kept a posting back deliberately, I've always
informed the sender and offered an explaination. So please do not
assume you've been offensive in some way, rather that a crude
algorithmic device has mistakenly intercepted your message. Then 
send it to me. Human cunning can still outwit artificial stupidity. 

With apologies,
