Re: [802SEC] RE: Reflector messed up
I don't think so. For example, none of the six messages whose headers I
sent to the IEEE as examples of long delays were from me to me. Based
on what I have observed, the long delays have occur on a number of 802
reflectors and are much more of an equal opportunity event than just DA=SA.,

In almost every case, it seems that the excessive delay occurs when the ultimate destination address matches the source address, but others on the list tend to get their copies in a reasonable time frame. This suggests at least the 2 following hypotheses:
