Sorry about that. Since you mentioned this, I will be more cautious from now
on. I just prefer to avoid short replies like Bill's, which take as much
time to read it it takes to open them.

No point in having messages with an inappropriate title. Bad for the user to
search for SEO advice and find a discussion on socks.

for pointing that out. I'll try to avoid it.

I have no idea what path this thread has taken while I kept aside. *smile*
