No offense, but it was not at all clear to whom you were directing
your question. At least in my news reader, your original question
just shows up standalone without being threaded underneath a post from
the person to whom you were presumably directing the question. In
fact, when I saw your question, I began scanning backwards to try and
figure out who you were talking to but I could not, so I just shrugged
and went on. So I doubt the previous poster was trolling - perhaps
they thought you were talking to them since it is really not clear?
Hey Brian. I hadn't thought about that. I was replying to Chris Spencer, who
did reply to my post in a manner which seemed to indicate he was using a
reader configured to keep the threads together. You might be right!
I had the same problem when I recently reinstalled Outlook Express.
There is an option in OE to group the threads together: View -> Current
View -> Group Messages by Conversation.
I'll bet your newsreader has a similar option !
Anyway, thanks for bringing this to my attention, since I may very well have
offended someone that I didn't mean to.
Thanks again !

Yes, and I use it by default. But the post in question from you did
not thread correctly - it is unthreaded and looks like a brand new
post in my news reader (mutt). It could be that the message you were
replying to has simply been deleted from my news server and there's no
message left to thread under. The news server for my service seems to
keep messages from this group for about two weeks only.
