What I think is meant here is that Joe 
cannot send a message to Statalist _that 
also comes back to him as a posting_. 

Being thrown off the list for some other 
reason would of course mean receiving no 
postings whatsoever. 

No, this problem is usually explained by 
the fact that the sender is attempting 
to send something not plain text to the list, 
meaning HTML, or something encoded using 
MIME, or a VCARD, or some other such stuff. 

As explained many times over in the FAQ and
in postings to the list, 

* Statalist asks all members to send plain 
text postings only (and with good reason, 
documented in the FAQ and documents linked
thereto) 

* the majordomo software running Statalist 
tries to trap other stuff (it is not always 
successful, but it often is). 

So once more, please: plain text only!
