Every once in a while, you'll have a review which seems to get lost in
the system.  This happens for a variety of reasons.

First, rac.reviews is a moderated group.  Reviews have to be approved so 
we know that they aren't spam or mega-crossposts.  Second, every once in 
a while your server may have problems sending out messages.  Check 
Deja.com to see if your posts to other newsgroups have made it out.

As of December 7, 1999, the following robo-moderation script is in place:

1) If the posting has a Followup-To:-header (FUT-header) that points
   anywhere but rec.arts.comics.reviews (racr), nothing is changed.

2) If the FUT-header points to racr and some other group, racr is
   removed from the FUT-header.

3) If the FUT-header points solely to racr or is not there at all, the
   robomod looks at the Newsgroups:-header.

   3a) If the Newsgroups:-header points to racr and some other groups,
       racr is removed and the FUT-header points to the other
       groups. (Meaning: If you crosspost your review to racr,
       rec.arts.comics.misc (racm) and rec.arts.comics.vertigo (racv),
       the FUT-header will point to racm and racv.)

   3b) If the Newsgroups:-header points solely to racr, the FUT-header
       will point to racm.

If you have any questions about the moderation, please direct them to 
the moderator, Peter B. Juul (mailto:racr-admin@enzym.rnd.uni-c.dk).  
If you tried to post and cannot, either use a different account or post 
a short, polite message to rec.arts.comics.misc asking if Peter's been 
receiving any of your emails.  For all we know, it could be his system 
that's temporarily down...
