Believe it or not, I did read your message.  I did not mean to accuse you of 
telling him to post elsewhere or that it was off-topic for the list.  I am 
sorry if you got that impression. I just feel the the issue is very important, 
and needs to be "shouted from the roof tops", as the saying goes.

Again, my message was nothing personal against you.  I just thought I'd provide 
more information on the bug.

My message has not shown up on the list, yet.  Is the list moderated, or is it 
just an issue of a reply to a message showing up before the actual message does?
