Your post to the reflector is probably fine.  I see you're a gmail user. 
That's likely the problem. I manage a few e-mail lists and this is a 
common problem with gmail users.  One way to check for sure is to see if 
your posts appear in the archive.

Gmail, in a mis-guided attempt to keep your in-box uncluttered, treats 
the post coming back from the reflector as a duplicate and deletes it.

If you spend some time on Google you'll find a lot of discussion. I 
manage a few e-mail lists and when this first came up with one of my 
users it drove me nuts.  Just one more reason I hate gmail.
