Create a new thread for a new topic.

Leave in the attribution lines of any included previous posts, but
leave out anything that is not germane to your response, and it is
safe to delete prior posters' signatures and that CentOS mailing list
tag at the bottom (it will get appended anyway).  Signatures and the
CentOS list tag are called CLUTTER when left in from a prior post.

Amen to that, including signatures.

We realize that sometimes this is tricky - I have had hit and miss
success on some things, direct bulls-eyes on others, but at least give
it a shot (or four) BEFORE you post to the list.
