12 Not a problem. In fact, it is not I (or Indi) who is causing the
13 breakage.
15 A little further investigation has shown that the Message-ID: line of
16 all message posted through the Gentoo list server is rewritten,
17 regardless of its initial value. This is why correctly posted messages
18 have the Bastard Operator From Hell designation: the domain name of
19 Gentoo's list server is This also means that those who read
20 this list's messages via email will always see a valid Message-ID: line.
22 Now, one other possible cause of message id mismatch is people posting
23 directly to Usenet as well as through the list server. All NNTP
24 servers should have the newsgroup that is a reflection of this mailing
25 list marked as "no posting allowed"; certainly
26 is configured that way. However, if a
27 misposted message gets through from another Usenet-registered NNTP
28 server, I will see it with the alternate Message-ID: line, not the one
29 generated by the Gentoo list server. It is messages such as this that
30 cause the breakage in threads when somebody (anybody) reading through
31 an NNTP server posts a follow-up to such a message.
33 So, when you see a breakage in a message thread, it is the message that
34 is the tail-end of the original thread that is causing the breakage,
35 not the message that apparently starts the new thread.
37 I hope all is clear now.
