(In case it's not clear from the content of this message, yes I did
intend this to go to the dinosaur list -- MR)

Tom and anyone else who is currently receiving multiple copies of a
message which contains header information such as:

     (rmail: Error # 15 'Cannot create lock file')

I have discovered which address is causing the problem.  I have
stopped mail from going to that address via the list, so no more new
instances should occur.  The message you're now reading was also sent
to test that belief.

Those of you already affected, I will now attempt to inform someone
who can stop the messages which are currently filling your mailbox.
No action I can perform from here will stop them without the
intercession of another human being closer to the source.  Rest
assured, though, that this too will pass.

While I'm here on the subject, let me also say that Stan really ticked
me off yesterday with his vague complaint to the list.  I attempted to
flame him personally, but, irony of ironies, I have not been able to
get mail through to him because his machine appears not to be
listening.  If any of you EVER EVER EVER have a problem with mail
bouncing from the dinosaur list, please do what Tom Holtz just
did... send a copy of the bounced message (complete with header
information) to me personally at: rowe@lepomis.psych.upenn.edu.  A
non-specific statement posted to the entire list will do nothing other
than to waste the time of nearly 700 individuals and put you on my

Thanks for your cooperation,
