 Here are two examples. I have seen email with 20+ minutes delay even on
 the last hop to me, though in the first example it was only 4-5 minutes.
 In the first example most of the delay is within merit, on the last one
 the majority of the delay is from trapdoor to my box.
But we don't know what the *cause* is of the delay between Merit & your box. That might be caused by network problems between the two points, your box temporarily being unavailable, or whatever.

We just don't have enough information to make a determination as to whose fault this problem is.
