Perhaps *you* have changed something in your news filtering?
These are cross-posted to three newsgroups, and Rob has
"gmailnospam.com" as his domain. Either could be things which could be
blocked by filtering. (But since you get the replies, and they are
still cross-posted, that could be blocked on either the "From: " or some
other header. (Just as yours has a "From: " with a domain of
"invalid.invalid" -- another thing which someone might block on.
So -- look to what spam blocking is going on at your end.
Do you by any chance do a 'mark all as read', 'junk all', or something similar,
in one of the groups it is cross-posted to?
First thing to check -- look in the 'marked as read' messages in your newsreader,
and see if the message shows up _there_.
if it is neither in 'unread' or 'read' messages, then the 'problem' is at your
newsserver, contact the server operator.
if it's in the 'already read', but you didn't read it, it's an issue in your
Seems to be wide spread since it has been raised before. I know I do
not "delete" posts, only mark them as read, and also stopped seeing
the original. I suspect that a server is calling the original message
spam and deleting it since it is basically a link with almost no text
and appears weekly. but by the time I get home, someone always has

Marking as read *is* the means of deleting an article from your
view. Truly deleting means removing it from the server (and
theoretically all servers) so *nobody* could see or read the article.
And that ability is restricted to two individuals per article:
1) The actual author of that article.
2) The news administrator of the news server from which it was
originally posted. (To give him the power to cancel spam floods
by a user on his system.)
Granted -- there are ways to do it anyway, but they require more
knowledge of how news servers work.
That may be -- especially since the link is to blogspot, which
is frequently a host to spamed sites in my experience. And the fact
that it is cross-posted adds to the likelihood that it will be
(mis)-identified as spam.
Perhaps someone needs to talk to the news admin at
eternal-september to allow an exception to be made from this. I know
that I had to make an exception in my killfiling to keep it from being
marked as already read by my newsreader.
Both of you seem to be using eternal-september as your news
server, perhaps it is indeed the server.
Looking at the images, I've decided that the release is for a
ratchet instead of to allow the handle to be removed.
