35 Well, something works now. This is threaded as it should be. So,
36 whatever you are doing, keep doing it that away. lol
38 I don't want you to think I was upset or anything. I just went back and
39 noticed you was one of the ones that it was breaking the threads on. I
40 was sort of figuring you were using a mobile device or something that
41 was breaking it and it was not you choosing to break it. Someone
42 noticed it was also doing the same with someone else's replies as well.
43 I figured it was something about the senders "equipment" or maybe it was
44 just me. That's why I asked and was trying to figure out why this was
45 happening.
47 Better late than never. lol Glad you got you backups done, I hope you
48 never need them. ;-)
