No, I'm not.  I'm using a Gmail address.  I'm posting from my computer, using 
KMail, via my ISP's SMTP server.

It's not emails from me that are missing, so myself would make no 
difference.  I don't use Gmail as an email client, only as an archive and 
POP3 server, and I don't send through Gmail, but through my ISP's SMTP 
server.  I always get copies of my own emails to mailing lists.

If you are saying that Gmail's POP server randomly discards received emails, 
without even putting them in either the spam folder or the "bin", and other 
mail servers don't, this is the first that I have heard of it.  If it be 
indeed the case, then that is a serious matter, but I would expect to have 
heard about it in that case.

However, something has gone wrong.  Some emails in this thread are missing.  
So perhaps Gmail's POP3 server has started a policy of randomly discarding 
random emails.
