I don't know...
Having to read ALL THE THREADS sounds like an appropriate punishment for a
man who is so neglectful of his poor, loving wife. In a far off land, all
alone, just these young native men who are half naked all over the place,
virile and free.
Hell, got any of that wine left? :P
Right, to the request!
It's part of netiquette that if you drift a conversation of topic, you're
supposed to rename the thread to cover the new direction. It should still
nest under the original thread in mail readers.
This is why I mostly use the forums....
I also hate it when people drift off topic within a thread!
Also, have you guys been following my new hardware releases on the forums
