I don't mean to accuse anyone of anything.
I just want to note that any manipulation of
list content, *if* it ever occurs, is not
acceptable (aside from spam filtering).
Of course I can never prove anything along
these lines and any naming will only result
in creating life long enemies, and no benefit
to me of any kind.

You are right that misconfigurations and incompetence
could be confused with mailing list content
manipulation.  I have tried "directly contact the owner" too in
at least one case that I can think of and received no
response -- maybe the fellow was too busy, or sick
or dead or something (but still active on the same
mailing list, somehow).
