I will guess that they were filtered by one of the newsgroups in the
mesh of hosts passing news articles around and therefore you didn't
see it in your news server.  Here is host Path they listed.  Therefore
looking at any of those host newsgroup servers would have seen the
message there.


It is also possible that they were posted, then an anti-spam cancel
control (possibly an automated cancel-bot) canceled the message from
the newsgroup.  Meaning that if one reads the newsgroup later in time
that the spam will have been removed before it is seen.  But it would
have already been passed on via the gateway to the mailing list.

Just guessing...
