PattyClink,

It's not a "me too" post if it's not acknowledged as such.

If it's acknowledged as "me too" the original poster is not being ignored (or "shit on" as I so hyperbolically referred to it earlier)>

If it is not acknowledged as a "me too" (meaning with reference back to the original point and the originator of that point it does just as Alex and Jon were talking about in prolonging the thread needlessly and furthermore, it is the moral equivalent of plagiarism. If you meant to bolster the point made by a fellow poster as either an emphasis to, or encouragement of that poster, the appropriate way to do so would be to ACKNOWLEDGE THE ORIGINAL POSTER! This isn't that hard to understand.--JH
