Are any of them using web mail programs, in particular Gmail? There 
is a well known "feature" of Gmail where it suppresses display of a 
user's own posts if the message ID matches one of an e-mail the user sent.

This is covered in the FAQ but it would be hard to find if you didn't 
know how to find it or if that was the exact symptom.

See if this might be of use:


Particularly the part about Gmail near the bottom.
