The problem appears to be that you totally removed any hint of:
a--"what the heck" you were talking about and
b--who your comments were addressed to.
It seems that more and more posters just eliminate all references in their
posts to this list of what the heck they are talking about/replying to and
whom those comments are addressed to. Perhaps we all fear 'moderation'
for over-quoting but my gosh, you got to have a little background in your
post/reply (other than the subject line info) so we can fit your thoughts
the thread in the right order with the right meaning.
