Thank you for looking at this situation. It's *possible*, but
I've looked at a large number of list messages, and found that:
1. The vast majority would trip the standard administrivia trap.
In fact, even on a list where zubscription *isn't* a major topic,
I found the normal trap too easily tripped, and switched it off.
So I'd be surprised if it's on for majordomo-users.
2. There was no significant difference between latency for messages
that could not have that problem (no bad words), and those that did.
So I'm led to think it's not an approval delay here. The delay
was always in the 7 to 14 hour range. The delays on lists I run
are in the 2 to 5 minute range. majordomo-users has about 1000
members; one of mine has around 200. We're running the same
versions of majordomo (1.94.4) and sendmail (8.8.5)...
Perhaps I should be asking the list, is there anyone else here
who is experiencing a similar effect? Or who has seen it, and
then found a way to fix it?
