We don't even have a loopback plug for a local interface, so
it must have been the BBN repairman. Please make sure who's at fault
before randomly flaming! If you can give me some more info, I will go
barf at the NCC; they seem to still have not learned that leaving
loopback plugs on enabled ports is an absolute no-no.
I didn't send the message to flame. I was hoping someone would read it
and take appropriate action. Perhaps the NCC merely had things logically
looped back (can they do that?). In any event 3/54 (octal) was looped
back for at least an hour prior to my sending the message; probably
several hours in total. Plenty of time for every host on the net to
unqueue their mail to themselves, rather than to MC.
