I think I am now getting more confused with more information. I have thought I was sometimes replying to an individual post and sometimes to the group. I just clicked on Eric’s id? in blue and got a list of all his posts over the years but not the one about Australia.
Let me reiterate what I think I now know. If I want to comment on a particular post I go to
There I saw "reply” to all the posters. I hit reply to Eric and this is what I got after I sent the message:
I didn’t know I just created a topic??? Why would I bookmark/share/flag/etc? what do all those choices do for me? I used to just go to the website and look up the topic.
I am complaining like an old person who doesn’t want new technology but my prior career was installing voice and data systems so I am not a technophobe. I retired 15 years ago to pursue jewelry making which I found packed with knowledge but linear in process. I have not continued to grown up with the multidirectional nature of the web. Does that make sense?
So I am in the old world thinking in email terms and Seth’s thinking in website terms?
