Ahh, here we go -- it looks like our moderator inadvertently set this to
 Discard (it had previously been set to Hold).

I apologize for the excessive noise required to come to this solution. I
very much appreciate your help in tracking this down. I feel like I've
got a much better handle on the process mailman goes through to post a
message, though.

In the future, if we see our messages "disappearing into the ether" so
to speak, the first thing I'll do is check all the discard settings.

Thanks again,
