    This is a response to 11194, Historical Lunars submitted by Antoine which I would like to respond to here. Let me add to that discussion as a partial response to Frank's post 11183. Antoine has put his finger on something that Geoffrey Kolbe first brought up. The possibility of a possible software glitch on my end. I responded that I didn't think so. I am now not so sure. In making a very limited examination of my posts, I noticed 11161 and 11167 sent by me are both duplicates of one another. The same is true of 11175 and 11178. I think the first time this cropped up is with 11064 and 11065.
     
    Since I'm pretty sure the numbers are assigned chronologically, I don't know what to make of it. But I don't think it is far fetched to think that other members might  have similar duplicates that are being created. Or maybe it is a malfunction at my end. If so, I do not know what is triggering it.
     
    I also find it difficult to keep track of what is being said when the prior messages are not carried foward as a thread. I endorse Antoine's suggestion of a "tree" or as he called it a thread in 11190.
     
    I decided not to post this in the "Historical Lunar" category for fear of creating more duplicates.
     
    I have meetings this morning and will get to the rest of my mail when I return.

    Subject: [NavList 11183] ADMIN: confusion in reading messages

    Joel Jacobs, you wrote:
    "If I felt it necessary to expand further on what Lu said in his response to me, I would have done it myself. I do not want you or anyone else sending mail 'On behalf Of Las Office.'"
    And you continued:
    "I do not know Irv Haworth, and I can't imagine what would possess anyone to do something which is like forging a signature to a check.. As far as I know, that's a first for this list."

    You're confused, Joel. And in earlier message to George, you confused my message, his reply, and then Lu's reply. But I'm actually used to this, Joel. I've seen it for years. You're one of those people who knows a lot about sextants and celestial navigation, but email is a great and wild "land of mystery" to you. You are easily confused by the emails you read. Irv Haworth was quoting your message (that's where the "On behalf of Las Office" came from). Now, let me be very clear on this, you owe Irv Haworth an apology. You also owe George Huxtable an apology. In the future, when you are reading messages, please remember that you are, in fact, easily confused by what you read, so before you accuse someone of "forging a signature", sit back and consider the possibility that the problem is on your end.
