The Nabble "mirror"/"gateway" was a source of spam to the list, so acceptance from postings to its pages was initially severely restricted a year or two ago and then later shut off entirely. Its users seemed to lack an understanding of the need to post in plain text and its interface appeared to be an ongoing source of confusion. This has been explained multiple times on the list.

Although Nabble claimed to be the Rhelp archive, that claim was bogus. The real Archive is at https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-help/. This ia all described at https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-help

You were able to reach Rhelp with this email. You are subscribed as receiving emails in digest form. One of the sources of confusion for Nabble users was the need to post in plain text.  It's your responsibility to read the Posting Guide and configure your chosen email client properly.
