If I understand Kay correctly then the problem is that he responded via the
questions@ list and the moderation bit was set there, which prevented some
of his articles from being gatewayed to the usenet.

In Kay's original thread Steve Kostecke mentioned he had removed the
moderation bit for Kay, but obviously that did not fully help.
