the times above are from the headers...

have not received/seen any email from Steve? I guess it still has to
come from list...

regarding malice? who said anything about malice? :)

if posts are moderated then they are moderated - this means that 
other posts, made after your post, may/will be sent to list before
your post... this is "normal" for moderated lists... - no malice -
normal... - but as this is not said anywhere, it seems kinda odd
now though.. , so i guess now there is something to know :)

your further reply below starts from your listserv receipt after 6pm
so, 16H22 was received by you, after 6pm - whereas other senders
that sent after 16:22, was distributed by listserv before 6pm

so, moderated list or timezone bug?

First and obvious question: Is the list/me moderated?

If not, then to look for the technical reason why the factual is
happening :)
