      Could be that you posted to one of the mailing list archives, in which
      case your post will never make it to the forum.
      This is actually a fairly common mistake I see people doing weekly. The
      archives clearly say "Read-only archives" in the main topic listing, so
      please don't post there! They are there for historical reasons only.
      Every once in a while, someone will reply to an ancient thread in their
      own personal archives, and that post will be appended to a thread in the
      archives. I haven't figured out quite yet how to keep that from
      happening, although I think I'll have the solution soon.
      Other than that, we only delete duplicate posts or posts with
      offensive/objectionable content, such as the "newbie"-disparaging posts
      from a few weeks back.
      What was the title of your post?
