contained in the response that I'm reading, so I don't have to scratch my
head and waste time wandering over to the archives to see the previous
pieces of the conversation.

I'm serious; I'm not being antagonistic, but that may not show through in
text so I'm disclaiming it with this paragraph.
PS Because you (or one of the previous responders) already trimmed the below

therefore at risk of being slightly antagonistic by not looking them up in
the archives right now. However, I'm hoping that this instantiates my
point, as opposed to just describing it.
