My comment was not aimed at you or your post, but at a general tone that seems to be too prevalent these days. It is right and proper to correct people that don't understand netiquette, but IMO it should be done in private. I'm sorry that it appeared to be personal, but that's one problem with threading - you have to attach to something, and it tends to be the last message in the thread that catches it when such a general comment is made. Since your story was not part of the practice I'm complaining about I apologise to you. Anne -- New to KDE Software? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
