If I criticized the wrong party, I apologize. It is sometimes difficult to 
read your response, since there is no rt-angle bracket or anything else 
deffrentiating a previous post and your response. They all look like you 
posted the same thing. I'm not sure how your Mozilla on Linux newsreader 
works, but your responses *appear* to be mixed in to the posts you are 
replying/commenting on. Previously you've used a different method, and was 
quite discernable, however of late, I've been having difficulty, hence why I 
thought you were the flamer.
