What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

The 'Wish You' post is Off-topic to that thread.

Again, the same someone who has difficulty with the concept of a potential SM forum being discussed in the SM forums, instead of 'The End' thread -

Hi Frank,
I'm not sure about removing his post again.
All the links go to "The End" topic, no matter which forum link is clicked.
Is this because it's a "Global Announcement" or what?

I use the "View New Posts" tab/link from the Index page.
Shows as "The End"..........Date etc.......(Global Announcement.)

Yep, the Global Announcement stuff doesn't make it easy. Essentially, the post needs to be moved either to SeaMonkey General** or Locked.

As it is, on a Global Announcement, posts like that perpetuate* the idea that an alternative forum to the whole of mozillaZine has been set-up, which is not the case and will only confuse people. i.e. it is off-topic to that global thread.

* if I answer this dross where it is that just perpetuates the fallacy even more.

** end of this thread? viewtopic.php?p=14845790#p14845790

The problem was, AFAICT, was that "Wish You Were Here"
was just posting to the incorrect forum.

Should be good to go now. I hope so, anyway.

Looks ok to me?
It's just that it's dawned on me that 'zero tolerance' only seems to mean putting extra police in poor, run-down areas, and not in the Stock Exchange.
