Having just got back to my monitor to pick up and read the latest posts to
this thread I'll say -- as it appears that I was the last person to post
before your annoyance became visible, Dag -- that I had a similar
misunderstanding to Akemi and the two paragraphs quoted before your quote,
above, could just as well have been written by me rather than by Akemi.  :-)

And I thought you knew enough about me to realise that I am approachable? --
my e-mail address is visible for all to see.

Looking up at one of my Firefox tabs I see "www.centos.org - Forums - ...".
That expands to read "www.centos.org - Forums - unread topics". Most
definitely the "www.centos.org" could go from that . . .

The English pedant feels a rant coming on. One forum, two or more fora. Just
like one referendum, two or more referenda, etc.
