Re: [mythsoc] Re: More JRRT items
- I just noticed that the message in which I quoted Michael Martinez as saying
"Magic, discussion of magic, and magical items abound," failed to include any
of the words at all. I'm sorry. This isn't my fault. Would anyone like to
join me in beating up the people at AOL, Yahoo, or Microsoft whose software
is so screwed up that sometimes the message that's sent to the members of the
mailing list leaves out all the words of the message, even though the words
are there in the message as I sent it?

use AOL 7.0 and Windows 98 and somehow this interacts with Yahoo mailing
lists so that occasionally when I quote a message (by highlighting it with
the right mouse button and hitting "Reply", causing it to be quoted in my
message), it looks all right in the message when I send it. However, in the
message that's actually received by the members of the mailing list, some or
all of the quoted words have disappeared.
