[mythtv-users] Noob Question....

First; the Deon was too harsh; no one is "new" to email.  In my opinion 
"Thread Hijacking" is not a big deal since it mainly hurts the new poster, 
not original poster.  I write-off 90% of the threads for one reason or 
another (usually because the issue is resolved).  If you thread on one of 
them with a new topic, you don't get noticed.  If you start a new thread, 
you are noticed.  (I realized _some_ hijacks create a ton of noise and the 
original thread is not resolved, so that is bad.)

Second, you didn't take care of the threading because you didn't remove the 
SMTP header:
   In-Reply-To: <c545f1a0050928200251f7dca7 at mail.gmail.com>
...so everyone's email programs still thread your message onto the one you 
responded to.  :-)

Well, thank you so much for the advice, I am not new to Email, however I am
new to this group and not necessarily aware of how things work.  I thought I
took care of the thread thing, by changing the subject line.  It wasn't my
attempt to hijack anything.  I intended to find the proper resources for
this program, and the proper forum to ask my questions from.

Insults aside, I thought this was the proper venue to request assistance, if
it's not I'll happily leave it aside and go where I can find some
assistance, or find another program.

And it looks like you are new to e-mail as well.
Please do not post a new message by replying to an existing message. This is
called thread high-jacking. Some of us read the messages as a threaded
discussion, and your message pops up in the middle of the thread.
