In comparing the FreeLists OBOL Archives and ABA lists (see screen captures below from about 9:30 AM PDT [ABA times are not in PDT]), I see that my posting is not the only posting showing in the OBOL Archives, but not ABA's OBOL. From the screen captures below starting with yesterday's Karen Saxton's "Re: hummingbirds again" showing in FreeLists OBOL Archives, there are 23 OBOL postings showing up in FreeLists Archives but only 12 in ABA's OBOL.
And my 2nd try this morning for a singing GC Sparrow went through to FreeLists OBOL but not ABA's OBOL.
Many people follow OBOL on the ABA's OBOL List.
I have no idea what the issue is with the ABA's OBOL list, how long it will last or has lasted, or if the messages missing to the ABA list will eventually show up.
Oh oh, I just now realize that I have probably wasted my time with this email because the very people who need to read it are using ABA's OBOL list and may not see it because it will not show up on the ABA's list.
