When b-hebrew was an email discussion list, the mailman software automatically archived the postings. Several years ago b-hebrew moved to this web-based forum. All the postings here are archived on this forum, searchable and viewable. But the old archive you point to is not available via this forum, but only directly. As for the future dates, I noticed that years before. The software is confused. :-)

We have no control over that archive. It is what it is.

The archive is broken, and I’m not sure if any messages are archived.

When this forum was moved here, I was asked about some of the more controversial statements that I had made on the old mailing list. I went and looked, and found them missing from the archive. Not only my statements, but others as well. I found whole threads missing. I looked for my very first posting on that mailing list, which was merely “Jeremiah 51:60”; when I looked part of that thread was missing, including my message, though some other messages from that thread were still there. So basically, that archive is kaput. It was already broken shortly after the move here, and I haven’t looked at it in years (plural) so I don’t know what’s happened to it since I last looked.

I archived messages from another discussion group where there was controversy. But I thought I didn’t need to here. Now I wish I had archived the mailing list too. Too late now.
