Yes, I should have pre-empted that one. But glad it gave someone a laugh.

It's not related. My cctalk filter runs before the UTF-8 trash filter,
and I check the trashbin regularly.

Here's one check. See attached screen-cap of cctalk emails. Usually many per
day, but only one per day on the 15th & 16th Nov, none at all on the 17th.

or maybe everyone was in shock over the awful Paradise fire death toll.
Which may be over 1000, unless a lot of people listed as missing do turn up.
