Hmm if I could extract the reply from the original message I might be able
to figure out exactly what Bernard was saying in that one .. maybe bernard
if you put a blank line between the quoted text and your text it might
make more sense?
I think we need another list called <waterford-shit-slinging at linux.ie>
where all the lads from waterford can crap on each other without
disturbing anyone else .. what I can't figure out is the reply should only
go back to the person who sent the mail so these ppl are explicitly
sending this shite to the list also, where it must be quite obvious that
no-one exactly knows what they are talking about really ... and doesn't
want to know either ..
So from now on if a Waterford person slags another one, can the other one
just reply to them straight without going via the list ...
