 Must be using a single-button browser, presumably M$not!

Jaume Aragay Badia missed the point:

 It should be immediately obvious that Wolfgang was addressing not
*one* reply to the post offering a file, but to the *many* who had done
so, and those who might be tempted to do so in the (near) future.

 Jaume however is tarred with his own brush - he posts a public flame
to Wolfgang's public flame.  If I follow up in the same way, I must then
by implication, have his approval.

 How polite *can* you be to those who put their keyboard into gear
without brain engaged?

I agree, Paul. There must be a incentive for people to
not abuse or misuse the PIClist.

 That should be the other way about - copy (^C) the "From:" line first
*then* hit "Reply".

 Netscape had me really bugged on this - it never seemed to want to
copy that line, or the part I wanted, with any reliability.

 I just thought it was a bug (it probably is in fact) and couldn't
figure it till I used the approach you suggest and realised that it was
insisting on marking the *whole* line including the newline at the end.
But doing two edits and cleaning up is a bit silly.

 If I am *super* careful, marking the line to the second last character
and then just creeping across until the last character *just* lights and
releasing the mouse button without moving, or clicking just to the right
of midline on the last character and marking from there to the left
limit, allows copy of the string *without* the newline.

 If you can't get that "taped", just mark to the second last character,
cut and paste and type in the last character from memory.
