I thought I was making a polite request to maintain the integrity of a thread (any thread)
That was, at least, my intention but it seems I've touched a nerve
If you choose to draw some other conclusion then that's certainly your prerogative but this isn't the place the discuss it
Sorry @Target, I did not intend to be "disruptive"
please reread my post. I made no reference to anyone, and had that been my intention it would have been quite clear
...only using the functionality built into this discussion board for our use, with the objective of focussing the comment subject line more specifically on the actual content of the post, so that people could get the sense of the content from the subject line without having to read the actual post.
seems kind of redundant to me. Writing a substantial description of an individual post in the subject line kind of defeats the purpose of writing the post.
Surely the subject line belongs to the thread?
they might get somewhat lost in the unending series of posts entitled with the generic "Re: Firefox Extensions: Your favorite or most useful."
Sorry but this comes across (to me) as if you think your posts are somehow more important or more relevant than the rest of 'the unending series of posts'
I'm sure @mouser would have thought about the possibility of people doing this. Do you think he should block this feature?
not sure what it is you think your asking me here or the relevance of this statement
I had no idea that it might be de rigeur
in this forum to leave subject lines well alone because they belonged to the OP originator, or something.
FWIW this threads been running for about 9 years (about!! that's really got to get up the noses of the pedants out there!!) so there is a history of continuity, regardless of who the OP is or was.
let me be clear - I am not trying to be the arbiter of good behaviour here. I don't have that right any more than anyone else here.
I made a simple request, that's the end of. If you feel it's justified you might comply, if not, you won't (I'm guessing the latter) but it's not that important.
