Ted, there are other aspects of the list protocol. One has to do with
message format. You seem to have great difficulty with this one,
requiring other people to manually reformat, and often to guess what
you're talking about.
Another has to do with politeness. You seem to abuse this one again
and again; it's one of the reasons why I seldom read this mailing list
any more. You've probably driven off a number of people who would be
able to give *helpful* answers. Please stop.
