Hmmmm...glad someone esle was having this problem. Before they moved
I tried bouncing a chained message through soda (after using the CHAIN

Actually, in a couple of recent posts to the more obscure message bases
in USENET I sent the posts first through ghio, then through hacktic,
and from hactic through the gateway at  news.demon.co.uk. The uk gateway
seems to work flawlessly, so I'll figure on sticking with that as my
anon gateway.

You know how it is...once you find a remailer(s)/gateway combo that
works, you tend to stick with it. I find lately i've been going with
wimsey/hacktic/ghio and then out through demon.co.uk.....it seems pretty
