( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Except that it would be a confusing interface. A more accurate translation would be "Yes, we want your response. Here is a page that doesn't actually let you respond, but please don't be shocked or too confused and search for one of the links that lets you actually reply and click it and this time we'll actually give you a place to compose your reply. We hope you read the existing replies before you do that but we aren't actually going to tell you any of this."

So, these links could be such that they cause some explanatory text to be displayed above the thread. Of course, experience shows that exactly that type of explanatory text is the type of thing that people are very good at ignoring.

    [choroba]: I want to present the most bizzare bugs and misfeatures I met when working for a large financial institution
    [choroba]: I already gave a similar talk to my friends in a pub and at an internal conference at work and people liked it, so maybe...
    [choroba]: LanX: That's the heritage, I can't do anything else
    [RonW]: Sounds like some system my employer has "It does exactly what we need it to do and can't afford to risk anything we can't prove is 100% compatible"
    [marto]: choroba sounds interesting
    [RonW]: james28909 Why not write a Perl program to do the task?
    [choroba]: RonW Yes, but then, one day, they needed to switch from FTP to SFTP, and... but I can't give the whole talk away here :)
