Testing the account

Is it possible that some of the thread is taken down, so msg can not go to those thread?

Or is it that I’m experiencing some specific problem with my account?

I was trying to send a reply to the thread "Is it possible to lock the memory in kernel?’

If the thd is taken down I would not respond to it.

If you have a problem with the list, I suggest you:

a) Send email to xxxxx@osr.com, not post a thread on the list. Especially not one with the words “testing the account” in the title… which *I* assumed was you simply “testing” your “account” with a post.

b) Tell us in that email: (a) HOW you’re posting to the list (there are at least 3 distinct methods), (b) the specific result of your attempted post (post not showing up, rejection reply message, etc), (c) the time/date (as nearly as possible) of your attempt to we can look it up in the listserver log.

In answer to your specific question: We DO, rarely, “take down” threads on the list (or, sometimes, even individual posts). This is mostly done for rude, offensive, wildly off-topic posts, posts that contain an unauthorized disclosure of intellectual property, or posts that unduly annoy me for some unspecified reason. When a thread is “taken down” it will no longer appear on the web site and it’s deleted from the archives. We don’t now have, but will someday, a method for merely “locking” threads from further discussion. It’s a feature I really, really, really want… you can imagine why.

I would not go for a war-fare and take another OT to hunters’ paradise :slight_smile:

I tried 3 times to send one note using two different email, then realized it
is getting lost in the ether, so had to have a quick ( these days anything I
do quick and dirty seem to become more dirty than quick :frowning: … ).

I will surely try to remember to send this kind of thing to Admin account

Well, I would prefer any fine system ( lets say a dollar or 2 bucks for such
sins :slight_smile:
