Yes, I went and checked my options for questions@ and saw at the top of
the page that they had had a number of bounced e-mails from my address
recently.  My computer was down for about a week or so earlier this
month (had to be repaired).  I'm not sure what this means exactly in
terms of how the list server manages my subscription, but perhaps it's
being tentatively cautious and just not sending any of my list
submissions back to me(?).  I don't know.

I didn't actually change any settings while I was there, but that might
be worth a try.  We'll see if that helps.
