This is an interesting reply, and more than I wanted to know! Maybe I should revert to being a smacktard :-). But I haven't done much PM in the last 8 months, and I was thinking back to the 2002 to 2004 timeframe. I didn't know that the people who I have annoyed in the past have either forgotten about me or moved on. Of course PM makes it difficult to tell if such enemies really exist, and it may have been all in my mind.
I had no idea that some people are annoyed by replies to old nodes. Since I use PM as a reference, I appreciate them as long as they are informative, and I have found such replies helpful on several critical quests, on this site and others.
Thanks! Please keep us informed on how it all works out.
It should work perfectly the first time! - toma
