It's due to a number of factors, including the normal propagation issues
over the Net. More importantly, there are at least three different
programs that process the list, and if any of them fail to work (or run
slowly), weird output occurs.

(The three programs that I can identify are: the list software itself,
the mail/news gateway, and the digest program.)
