what does let's see if this get's posted mean?
Well, for Lonnie's possible enlightenment:
I use trn (threaded readnews) to read USENET posts, and it gives
me a sort of diagram of what post was replied to by what other
post. It looks like a string of numbers in parentheses, e.g.,
etc., where changing the number from (1) to (2) indicates that
the Subject: line has changed with thread drift.
But I saw Lonnie's original post as a pair of empty parentheses,
( )- (1)
where (1) was jholcks reply, to which I am now replying.
Lonnie, I don't know what your problem is, but the only time I've
seen a pair of empty parentheses was when somebody thought he was
replying in private email, but accidentally posted to the group.
It was slightly embarrassing for all concerned, but eventually
settled with no hard feelings.
I have no idea whether this is in any way related to your problem
in posting. But that's the only other time I've seen a pair of
empty parentheses on trn.
Perhaps other posters can provide more useful diagnoses.
