In another thread Hugo van der Kooij wrote:

Well why didn't you reply to the comment on the thread topic it was
post on, instead of splitting it into two, to further clog up the list

You must be a troll...

First, you don't know what "419 scam" spam is, and now you ask a 
banally moronic question about list ettiquette...

Anyway, in case you genuinely want to know (in which case I'm surprised 
your mommy helped you get subscribed to the list) I started a new 
thread because my question is actually about something quite unrelated 
to the original thread topic, _AND_ "your" thread was so stupid that 
most of those whose input I'd like in answer to my questions are likely 
to have stopped reading "your" thread.

Before you make a chronically inane response to this message, think a 
little about who will see it, how much Email bandwidth will be wasted 
transmitting it to the whole list and what, on-balance the benefit of 
your comment will be.  (Here's a tip to help you out -- had you Emailed 
me directly and asked why I forked a new thread, rather than sent your 
question to the whole list, it would have been obvious you were not a 
moron, but simply someone new to such lists and interested in how 
things work.  In that case I'd have given you a much nicer reply...)
