Oh, I'm familiar with the usual character of such things; that's why I
don't usually bother to read any thread he starts (or even necessarily
is involved in).

When the initial question seems simple and clear enough to address,
however, I sometimes take the risk of stepping in. Sometimes it does in
fact turn out to be that simple; other times, I regret the decision.

In this case, despite being in a new thread with no reference to (even
the existence of) any previous one made in the initial post, this
appears to have been a new episode in an ongoing serial of some sort. If
I'd realized that, and its attendant complicating factors, I probably
wouldn't have bothered responding in the first place.
