quoting rick moen:

>>-- like many others in the past where I've covered topics in depth here
and then it turned out that nobody was paying attention.

it IS 'possible' that someone posted something to an entire community,
you came in on it, and they didn't want to engage with you, yet still see
others' responses and communicate with them without dropping into a
private mail. happens in irc, forums, et.al all the time.

>>You _could_ try learning some security, and not just Web-searching

sigh. kinda what the ORIGINAL  post is doing...

i recommend the delete and trash can functions in your mail client(s),
i use mine A LOT...

message ends.
