Which lists?

linuxchix.simegen.com and linuxchix.org are still separate lists.
linuxchix.org is still pointing to linux.co.uk. There's nothing Dancer
or I can do about that till February, Deb is the owner of linuxchix.org
and doesn't seem to be able to get the registrar to accept that she's
herself. (no, nothing D or I have suggested has had a response from 
her saying 'it worked'.)

If the problems are with linuxchix.org lists, there's nothing I can
do. :( If they're with linuxchix.simegen.com lists, we can investigate

Most likely, what's happening is that some of the posts are going to 
each list.
