The extra text disappeared when I later looked at the 
pages via the URLs.

But I've run into another oddity. I did a google
search for:

"Comparing the OverDrive 1000 (A57) vs. MACCHIATObin"

and then used the 1st link shown, the one from the text:

QUOTE
https://lists.freebsd.org › freebsd-arm › 2019-December

Dec 2, 2019 — Comparing the OverDrive 1000 (A57) vs. MACCHIATObin Double Shot (A72) for buildworld and via a CPU/cache/RAM tradeoff-exploring ...
END QUOTE

which has the link (it is for one of my old messages):

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwiPhp3OtdLwAhVH6Z4KHaXQC68QFjAAegQIAxAD&url=https%3A%2F%2Flists.freebsd.org%2Fpipermail%2Ffreebsd-arm%2F2019-December%2F020854.html&usg=AOvVaw2VHrNUGc-Vce4CjAmTufxq

Or, extracting/converting the relevant part of that text:

https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-arm/2019-December/020854.html

This now takes me to the wrong message on the list, one titled:

Re: 64 bit ARM systems with more than four cores Ed Maste

Turns out that the my old message now shows up as 2 later
by number (020854 -> 020856):

https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-arm/2019-December/020856.html

gets to the message with the correct title.

It appears that the numbering has not been preserved
in the conversion. This can make google search results
that point into the (older) freebsd lists
problematical.
