Original was from cb, 4 Dec. As has been pointed out previously, his messages behave oddly: replies from him show up as new messages and break the threads to which they are replies (at least for me and I believe for others). Not sure what caused the confusion in this case but possibly related.
^^^ CB: To lbo83235l and whom it may concern, I don't receive lbo-talk posts in my mailbox individually or in digest form. I go to the archives, copy posts I want to reply to and send them. That might explain the phenomenon.
