    Paul, you'll note that you only posted to the OS/2 group. Robert Kaiser
    does not read this group. When you have a SeaMonkey problem that is not
    exclusive to OS/2 versions of SeaMonkey, this is the wrong group to
    write about it in. When you don't know if the problem is OS/2 exclusive,
    it's safer to presume it is not. As a consequence, the better place to
    post is news:mozilla.support.seamonkey rather than here. When in doubt
    as to which is better, the best thing to do is crosspost. If you know
    the problem is exclusive to OS/2, then this is the best place, and
    because there is so little activity of that sort, a 2nd group just for
    OS/2 support would just scatter the limited resources we have even
    further.

    Reading the Posting Etiquette, which is linked in my sig:

    "No crossposting.

    It is almost never appropriate to send the same message to two
    mailing lists or newsgroups. Please don't do it. Or, if you must, make
    sure you set the Followup-To and Reply-To fields to ensure that replies
    go only to one, not to both.
    example: Newsgroup: mozilla.dev.apps.seamonkey
    Newsgroup: mozilla.dev.apps.firefox
    FollowUp-To: mozilla.dev.apps.firefox
    Reply-To: dev-apps-firefox@lists.mozilla.org
    Subject: XPFE browser?

    It is never appropriate to send the same message to two forums when
    one of those forums has general in its name.+

    In other words,better to select one group. If its the wrong group,
    someone will direct you to the correct group."

    These new support groups are not OS specific. Mozilla apps, being cross
    platform, have relatively few OS specific problems. When they are,
    specify the OS, and someone will help you, or direct you to a more
    appropriate group.
