In other words, you can only carry over the entire thread to reference it elsewhere.

Hi Phil,

Actually, you can reference individual posts - though it took me a while to realize it.

At the top right of each post, you'll see a number... it will have a format like this "#1" or "#11" or whatever... If you CLICK on that number, it will take you to the link to that individual post!

For example, here's the link to one of your posts, which is part of another thread...

Actually, if you want to make it look more "elegant", you can delete the "&postcount=X" part at the end, so the link is just

That number at the end is the individual number of the post...

(The number - 5245 in this case - is quite high because that post was added after I added most of the various posts currently in the archives... Once I add more of the archives that number on new posts will become over 30,000 ... However, for individual posts, that number won't change, so you can use it to link to individual posts...)

Hopefully, this makes some sense and at this point it looks like the Red team is winning with a three quarter Vote.

Yes, the vote is looking pretty one-sided!
