I have not crossposted to alt.religion.emacs. Maybe that was a
mistake. I have added the line "Follow-up: alt.religion.emacs" to the
header of my post. This Follow-up header is supposed to cause a
recipient's newsreader to post follow-ups to a different newsgroup. I
believe that this is some RFC standard, but I don't know for sure. It
is common practise in many of the newsgroups I read to use this to
change the group if a discussion has become off-topic or is supected
to become off-topic. It is common to add line like "Follow up set to
..." or "F'up to: ..." to one's post to indicate to silent readers
that follow-ups are expected to appear in a different group.

I was not aware that the web interface in Google does not follow this
convention nor that you use it. So I assumed it was intentional. Sorry
for that.
