It would help if you had posted this as a reply in the original thread.

In this instance, said thread is nearby, but otherwise it would be hard
to relate your post to what you replied to - *especially* since you
didn't even quote the original post.

OTOH, I have come to think that it might have been just a slip of the

For one thing, your name seems somewhat familiar to me, and also,
you're using Xnews, so you're probably not a newbie...

If I'm wrong, please feel free to reinstate my original complaint - on
the honor system, of course :-)
