Just to add to this.  We don't control Nabble, and indeed nobody here
has any ties to Nabble.  The gnucash mailing list is just that, a
mailing list, and as such senders must be subscribed in order for posts
to get sent through.  People who are not subscribed directly to the list
will get put into the moderator queue.  Members of Nabble are no
