How did you manage to not only quote incorrectly (failing to add the
requisite '>' symbols), but post your reply in a *completely different
thread*, and add yourself to Reply-To into the bargain?

The only way I can think of you could have done that is to have hit
Reply in the other thread, deleted all of the automatically-quoted text,
gone to RC's post and copied the text you wanted to quote, then gone to
your reply and pasted it in.

side of it.

Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
