I also noticed that yesterday when I replied to Nestor Gandelman's email about initial values. I had started my email with "Nestor:", and for some reason that first line got (randomly) chopped off. In my second email on the topic, however, everything was fine. Any idea whether this occurs on all systems using Majordomo?

I wish I knew what you guys are talking about.  There is no such thing as a
Statalist parser, nor is it hosted by Stata Corp. Statalist is hosted here at
the School of Public Health; always has been.

As far as I can tell, Majordomo, the software package that runs the list,
randomly decides to chop off first lines.  We have not been able to figure
out a pattern

Dear Dr. Murray Finkelstein,

In response to your message
http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2004-11/msg00813.html

You can't use the word "From" at the beginning of any sentence otherwise the
Statalist parser hosted by StataCorp will cut the message at that point,
split your message in two, delete that line and post two separate messages.
I surmise that given that you used the word "From" in the very first
sentence, the parser discarded one of the two pieces as empty.

Why in the world does it do that? Rather than add this info to the FAQ - could the Statalist parser be changed???
