No messages?

One of my 'lurker' friends wasn't seeing messages.  Given that what I'd
heard was that the member list was reconstructed from archives of people
who had *mailed to the list*, I suggested resubscribing, which has
apparently fixed my friend's problem.

Hm, troubleshooting hint: always resubscribe.  If you're already
subscribed, I think you get a message to that effect, and maybe you have
another problem.  Also, if you're getting the list in digest, there
actually are days when nothing comes through.  :-)

I was successfully re-added to the list when it was reconstructed with no
effort on my part.  FWIW, YMMV, MOUSE -- Ian
