Again, the experts are in
That is the group you should go to for help with Forte Agent.
Didn't this thread kind of get off the track?
The conversation/s which are going on in the body of the messages are
'free' to drift and go away from the content seen in the subject (if
there is no moderation).
In fact, in my opinion, only the very first message in a thread is
liable to have its body content 'nailed' accurately by the/its subject.
That is, I believe that a new message thread should be created by the
author composing their message body clearly and unambiguously in the
body, and having completed that editing composition, they should make a
very very succinct and terse new subject title that best fits their
message body content.
Now, when I come along and reply to one line or two lines in their
larger message, my 'focus' needn't be on the focus or words in the
*subject*. I'm not replying up there in the subject. I am replying to
some specific word or words - a line - down in the body.
That doesn't mean that I should make new subject to best reflect what
the content of *my* message is - as opposed to what the content of
*their* message was. I am content to let my message's content be
determined (just) by what I have said down in the body. I don't choose
to make a new subject to better reflect what I am now talking about.
Some people like to make new subjects by modifying the old subject seen
after 'Was:' all the time. Some (other) people don't like to make new
subjects at all. Personally I'm more of a topic-drifting but
never-a-new-subject person. (Yet) Some other people are/become
disgruntled by the topic drifting away from what the newsgroup's topics
are supposed to be about.
This group is supposed to be about pc-homebuilt computers, but you
wanted to talk about how to find your earlier message thread and
Vanguard wanted to talk about different agents and I wanted to talk
about how to use GG advanced search and John Doe wanted to defend Agent
and the value of its support group.
