I have been scolded for doing that (it should only be > one line according to some) but never for what you describe. Can you have a look at your raw message source, this is what I saw in your previous one (minus all the headers for where the mail went through). I see no gap between quote and reply, and a - -- signature separator. I know Thunderbird is fond of not posting things as you typed them, nor showing things exactly as they are received. They're just two reasons why I won't use it. ------------ beginning of my paste --------------- X-Enigmail-Version: 0.95.1 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit X-RedHat-Spam-Score: 0 X-loop: [email protected] Subject: Re: Updates X-BeenThere: [email protected] X-Mailman-Version: 2.1.5 Precedence: junk Reply-To: For users of Fedora <[email protected]> List-Id: For users of Fedora <fedora-list.redhat.com> List-Unsubscribe: <https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-list>, <mailto:[email protected]?subject=unsubscribe> List-Archive: <https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list> List-Post: <mailto:[email protected]> List-Help: <mailto:[email protected]?subject=help> List-Subscribe: <https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-list>, <mailto:[email protected]?subject=subscribe> Sender: [email protected] Errors-To: [email protected] Status: O X-UID: 79917 Content-Length: 1370 X-Keywords: X-Evolution-Source: imap://[email protected]/ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Tim wrote: > On Thu, 2007-06-14 at 12:22 -0600, Karl Larsen wrote: >> I had to load a new FC6 on my laptop and when I brought it up the >> Package Updater told me there was 277 Updates!

I have watched, and I admit that I have actually replied, to this poster in the beginning. I have yet to see him acknowledge or reply to anything. Everything is a 'big deal' or a disaster or something. Nothing works well or is as it should be with Fedora Core 6 or Fedora 7. Sniff... Sniff...
