1. You should be sorry, since the list rules explicitly prohibit solving
your non-delivery problems by mailing to the list. (Yes, I know they
also prohibit responding to inappropriate postings.)

2. What makes you think this will get to X if your mail doesn't? And how
will you know if it doesn't?

3. Other approaches you might try instead:

a. Write to postmaster @... for help.

b. Ask your system administrator for help.

c. Wait until X posts something else and try replying to the address
on the new posting.

d. Just forget it. ...RM
