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...)
