Later I realised that you had posted another message (just minutes
afterwards). Therein you wrote more than a single word. Perhaps it's
nothing more than my humble opinion, but if a message takes longer to
click and 'calibrate' sight on than it takes to read, it become rather
obsolete. It just adds to traffic and clutter while bearing little
substance (knowledge/information). I can think of a few newsgroups where
inane one-liners drove me away.
Just my opinion...
