Default Finding messages to me

Am I missing a way to see replies to myself (right up front and in my face somewhere)? I keep feeling that someone thinks they're being ignored because I missed a reply I should have acknowledged, by not recognising a thread title or something and not going through the thread--

That's not available here at this stage, Molly. All replies actually go to the thread, although our clever Andrew and Don have worked out how to identify the parent message.

We think it's possible to get the software to recognise messages 'to' a member, but as the vBulletin community in general can't see the benefits of this, there's no help out there to develop it. At this stage, it's a work in progress.

I'm sure nobody here is going to be mortally offended if you fail to reply. I know that I've seen replies to messages replying to me that I missed.

And it's not that my "guilty" list isn't long enough already without worrying about non-replies!

Ah, yes, we all have them. Being a woman automatically qualifies you, and a Catholic upbringing adds a whole new dimension. <g>

Too true. (Speaking from personal experience.)

Oh, yeah.

My Jewish friends and relations always tell me they have a monopoly on guilt, but I yield to no non-(ex- or practicing) Catholic on that front. (Though the Jews run a close second!)

Only the Catholics call punctiliousness a sin, after all!

That's probably where the Catholics got it, although I think they refined it pretty well during the past 2000 years.

Remember, KT, a Catholic is just a reform Jew. Less reform than a Moslem, but a reform Jew all the same. And, if you read the New Testament really really carefully, you'll find that there was no dispensation from Jesus saying you were relieved from the guilt.<G>

We live in a Calvinist town (lots of Dutch and lots of variations on "Calvary Reform Church...) and I'll put up Calvinist guilt against Catholic any day! They can't confess --just have to let it pile up --leads to all sorts of strange behaviour--
