I have run into this problem before, but It just hit me again.
let me show the problem. The Peta thread is 3 pages and 123 posts long. It is 7 days old at this point. I have been reading (and posting) since it started.
Here is post #123 reading it you will see that our guest quotes featherlou and it appears that featherlou is commenting on someone else’s post. But whose?
So I read up through page 3 nothing. I am somewhat dyslexic so I read back down through page 3 to make sure I haven’t missed it. Nothing.
So I go back through page 2, again twice, to make sure I didn’t miss it. Nothing.
So I go back to page 1. The very last post on page 1 is the one I am looking for. featherlou was commenting on Contrapuntal’s posting a link to Penn and Teller’s Bullshit. Now it all makes sense.
Here is my small request, if you are quoting another poster from a previous page in a multi-page thread, could we all get in the habit of putting in the post number, or at least a page number of the post you are quoting? Especially if the post you are quoting quotes another poster.
Come on guys, my poor 15 watt brain can’t take too much of this.
