You're welcome, but please don't post thanks-only messages to the list.
I don't think they're appreciated by other list members.

Use Affero (see the link in my e-mail signature) or private e-mail to
thank people who have helped - unless you have something substantial to
add, in which case it is OK to post to the list both your contribution
to the discussion and a "thanks" (in the same message).

Also, I really do ask you (and others) to only quote _relevant_ context.
It is usually inappropriate to quote entire messages.  Most of the time,
you only need to quote blocks of a few lines each (with proper
indication that those are quotes), introducing your comments inline.

P.S. For those who are curious - we're at 400+ current subscribers.
