Josh Gibson, co-list founder here, writing in response to an earlier post.
The list comes out Monday through Friday, not on weekends. Posts are
approved around 10-11AM on Friday, and anything received after that time
won't go out until Monday at 10-11AM. This explains most of the late
Also, yahoogroups is very unpredictible. Some days, I'll approve things
at 10-11AM, and the digest will come out an hour later. Sometimes, it
comes out almost a day later. Seemingly, this has nothing to do with
the digest length, or the time of day when messages are approved.
The only editing that occurs on the list is the deletion of spam,
duplicate postings, and out of office messages. When people extensively
cut and paste from old messages, this too is deleted (old messages can
be viewed at www.yahoogroups.com). There is no editing for content,
except in cases of extreme offense (just once in five years).
FYI, this listserv has transmitted nearly 7,000 messages, sent by over
1,100 members, since it was founded in October of 1999.
