Interesting.  I've looked into this a bit and I'm afraid I don't  
really know what happened here.

There's absolutely no record of Robert's message in the gateway logs  
at all.  The gateway never saw the message to try to send it to  
comp.lang.ruby.

I'm guessing it wasn't successfully delivered to the gateway's  
mailbox, but I've never seen that before.  I have no idea what went  
wrong here.  Sorry.  :(
