Christian Einfeldt,

While I don't know how it happened, who did it, or if it was intentional
or accidental, in any case, your email address having apparently gotten
onto the "automatically discarded" list as Rick apparently discovered,
certainly should not have happened.

At least to the extent I can, on behalf of BALUG, I wish to apologize for
such error or inappropriate action/misconfiguration.

Hopefully we're taking steps[1] to substantially reduce the probability of
such misconfigurations and/or inappropriate changes to the BALUG list

Quoting "Rick Moen" <rick@linuxmafia.com>:
