Reminder, people, please do not add the "]" character to your own comments when typing in this box. The bracket means that that paragraph is quoted from the previous message (and should be appropriately snipped - see FAQ).
If you add one to your own comments it looks as if the message was accidentally posted without any new comment being added. That makes it impossible for a reader trying to scan quickly to the new commments to locate them without re-reading the entire message.
Posting followups to old messages is disabled; instead go to the main index and post a new message which mentions this one.
