If your not expecting a reply, do not ask a question or end that way. If your trying to make an argument on last word. Your essentially forcing such. I already explained this on dev... "If I said something to a group or individual in person. Then someone replied. I would not ignore their reply. That is rude and disrespectful. What others see as noise is me being polite and replying to those who have replied to my post. It is not trying to get the last word. It is simply being polite as I would in person. I would not walk away mid discussion. Would you in person?" https://archives.gentoo.org/gentoo-dev/message/9b8cc11a5b94df7a9eaa42442b5e71bb When someone composes an email, and says; "William, could you please..." That is CLEARLY addressed directly to me. Just like if someone walked up to you and said that. Would you walk away or respond? I guess I should be rude, ignore the message and not reply... They made a request direct request to me, ending in a question mark. Thus I replied. Exactly as I am now. Rich, I thought you had the thread on "mute".... :) -- William L. Thomson Jr.
