Re: NVDA release date was Re: [nvda] Easier way to edit exception dictionary?


But just for clarification, does that mean my change to the subject line did not actually create a new thread? I'm using Thunderbird, so if that did happen I'd like to know how I can start a new thread and prevent this from happening again.

I'm sorry I named the wrong person.  But perhaps my explanation will help Najaf understand what is being discussed.  It can't be assumed that people know what such terms mean, nor can it be assumed that people know how to do what is being asked, since there are people ranging from those with no previous experience with e-mail lists to years of knowledge and experience.

Er, it was not Mohammed who hijacked the thread.  He replied to the question
in the thread previously hijacked by Najaf, and also asked Najaf not to hijack
threads in future.  He also helpfully changed the subject line to reflect the
question asked in the hijack.

The next sentence is untrue.
The previous sentence is also not true.
