Not a problem.  I don't have an explanation for your mystery, but (1)
have double-checked the Mialman adiministrative interface's membership
roster for balug-talk@balug.org, under "c", and craigs@gmx.net is
definitely not among the subscribers.

(2) In your example e-mail, I notice something utterly bizarre:  It's
coming to your MTA from colo1.sifry.com.  That's odd because BALUG
hasn't had its machines on David Sifry's machines in years, and
currently has the entire domain virtual-hosted at Dreamhost.

Is it possible that there is still a Mailman instance at Sifry's machine
that thinks it's managing BALUG mailing lists?  If so, that would
account for your not getting satisfaction when you contact the -real-
BALUG Mailman instance.

You might want to write to the postmaster at colo1.sifry.com, who is
almost certainly David Sifry.

Since the balug-admin@lists.balug.org mailing list readers will probably
also be interested in this, I'm CCing them, and by your leave will send
them a forward of your recent mail.
