[OT] Just received all posts since 16-Oct-2018

This seems to happen sporadically. All messages sent to the list since 16-Oct-2018 were sent again. I checked the mail headers; the ones I sampled have today's date (5-Nov-2018) shown in the Received headers. What causes such a burst? Any way to prevent it?

I just had the same thing, and I think it's because the message are moderated by hand, so they get done in batches.

I have not seen any batches of duplicate posts arriving here, just the normal flow of the list, so all I can say is not everyone is affected by whatever's going on.

I don't think the list is moderated; I've never heard it mentioned, and my own posts usually show up within a minute or two.

I only say this because I actually asked the same question a while back and got this answer:

Some people post to this list without subscribing. This means the mailing list administrator has to manually approve them. He does so when he has time, so some messages are days old indeed.

Yesterday there was a spate of posts from gimpusers.com, the earliest from mid-october. And no, it was not a reposting of everything. I can notice this because I list my mailboxes in date-sent order.

We are subscribed, so we don't need a moderator to have the time to take pity on our posts. But any post via that forum is effectively from a non-subscriber, even if the forum itself might be subscribed.

Is it about a bicycle ?

I don't feel that strongly on this, but I do sort of have to question the logic of having the two merged.

The delay in getting forum posts quite often means that questions are already answered before they even reach us.
