I'm beginning to see that Juno may be crippleware. I'm pasting below the
first part of what I can see in the message header of Robert's post (I
assume the lengthy path the packets traveled is irrelevant):

As you see, there are References and In Reply to.
Now Robert's posting from the last digest I received displays only this:

Subject: Re: Tame (and time)
NO REFERENCES or In reply to. And they're not lurking somewhere,
apparently, because I looked in the version I saved as text file, and
that includes all the boilerplate.
The Digest as a whole, of which that message was an attachment, has this

So am I correct in assuming that since Juno doesn't seem to bother with
references or replied to in digested postings, I can go back to the
digest, so long as I'm careful always to copy the Subject verbatim? (Even
if it has typos, which one did a few months ago, but I see now why it was
never fixed.) But when starting a new thread, I don't hit reply, but go
to my address book (or cut and paste the address from the digest, which
is sometimes faster), then type in a new subject header. And if I forget
to do either....
Sorry to have caused all this carfuffle. Still, I may have to change
ISPs, because I'm drowning in spam, some of it quite nasty, and Juno will
only let me block it if I upgrade to version 5, which involves IE (and
you all know what I think of THAT). So all the reviews of ISPs you folks
sent are still very useful; thanks.
P.S. I hope to heaven the times on some of those postings were artifacts.
Nothing here is so urgent it has to be answered at 5 ack emma.
