Nope.  What you are seeing is the effect of "threading".
Unfortunately, the way the archive presents its lists, the
threads are not very clear.  However, perhaps I can make it
clear through the following:

What I've done here is (try to, anyway) reproduce the way that
the thread goes together.  When a threading mail client sorts
out a batch of messages by thread it will look not only at what
the message's time stamp is, it will also look at what message, if
any, it is *replying* to.  Some email programs show this in a
graphical format - the one I use does.  And what I tried to
reproduce here is an ASCII art picture of the way that the
thread runs.  This is actually nothing more than a slightly
modified copy-and-paste out of the email client that I use.

And so, as you can see the reason that Paul Webster's message
came before yours was simply the result of the threading, and
not anything mysterious or karmic.
