Yes, I understand this, but my response was generic. There's no way I could have responded at all without clicking "reply" to SOME post, so I clicked on the last post. It appears that the responding poster thinks the world revolves around him when, in fact, I wasn't responding to him specifically.

Then you should state it as generic, and not in reply to this specific poster. Otherwise, that is the convention. It's fine not to be conventional, but without explanation be prepared to be misunderstood. At least that is not a novelty for you.

IP,
hoping we have beaten this horse quite dead enough
