 Nasty mailing list echo

Looks like we've got us a loop of some kind, leading to lots of
repeated messages on "comp.lang.dylan".  I don't know if the problem
also appears on the mailing list.  The guilty party seems to be:


is responsible.  Anyone know who "apc.org" is?  Is that part of the
official machinery for funneling the newsgroup to the list and vice
versa, or is it some private archiver run amok?

I think the problem is on the netnews side, not on the mailinglist.

Gateways like like modify the message-ID of articles (which is
illegal), so your local news software don't realize that this article
has been spooled before. Therefore, a second article with same
contents is spooled.

Look at the Message-IDs of duplicated articles and on the Path:, that
should show the quilty site (usually a gateway to a message system
other than usenet, amateurisch).
