Hitherto, I just thought it was another strangeness of these here forums that you have to use the Tab or the mouse to get away from the heading and into writing the message.
But testing in another thread in another forum, I realized that you can actually change the heading. So actually, you can write whatever you wish there.
I wonder whether the nanny thing works there.
And now to posting the first post.
I had more than the usual delay.
So you tried it, Dave?
i've tried it before, but for the sake of Science! i'll try it again on this post! ... see above...
What's going on here????
Ah, I get it. No filters on emails
Don't know if you missed it in other threads, but this practice breaks
the only thing Jive offers for grouping emails. That wouldn't be too
bad, but for one other thing. It reverts email replies back to the
original subject and all hope of threading is lost.
I am replying to your subject, "This was meant to be the first post, but
is not" and my subject header actually contains:
Re: (Forum comments) This was meant to be the first post, but is not
Imagine that those parentheses are square brackets.
So it is a really bad thing, not merely an annoyance for members, such as myself, that just want to get on with posting.
Should we be surprised?
