Yes -- if your comment was to be on getting the category off of emerge --pretend. Yes, the example of trimming is right, but the context is still messed up because you aren't replying to the right thread (that discussion, if I'm reading you right, was on the initio thread, not this one). Sometimes replying to the wrong thread may be done, if for instance the author is viewing unread messages only and no messages from the "right" thread are currently displayed, to reply to, but if so, it's usually noted in the comment, to avoid confusion when the reply seems to make /no/ sense in regard to the quoted context. (Here, it makes sense in regard to the meta-context, but not the actual content of what you quoted, if that makes any sense...) -- Duncan - List replies preferred. No HTML msgs.
