The stop screw was not mentioned because "In the last ride in Fall 2013, everything was fine..no derailleur adjustments made since Fall 2013." The only possibility would be a prank adjustment, but it seems unlikely the OP would not have checked the inner limit screw. Again, the isolation techniques mentioned would quickly show that the derailleur is not moving inward even without the cable to prevent it doing so, and then of course one would check the limit screw if it had not been done before.
There's no such thing as a routine repair.
Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.
If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.
Please take the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!
