Thank you! I like to set the bar high for followups.

Actually, I want people to read *my* posts. I love to see
my name in print, can't you tell?

It was a Jeff Bone message that caused me consternation.

Mine had links to external sites, used my name near the top of
the message, and used my name directly adjacent to one of the
external links.

The real determinant will be followups to each of our messages;
are they direct followups (and thus have a clear "in-reply-to"
back-link in the archives)? Do they retain the original subject
line, or much of the original body/out-links?
