Dang it, Asmovian

I spend a half hour composing a post for this thread only to find I'm twenty minutes too late.

Half an hour? I think the general expectation is that participants finish more quickly than that.

The five-year-old thread had been reanimated by a spammer, and I think it's safe to say the OP is no longer seeking advice on the subject. I elected not to leave it open since I didn't think there were likely to be valuable (non-joke) contributions at this point. But you're welcome to start a new discussion and link to the old thread.

Yeah, well if I'd noticed it was a zombie thread I wouldn't have replied to it. Although the post is a bit long, it would be a kind of weird without the context, so into the Unpublished folder it goes, to be dropped in when appropriate. Smart writers never throw anything away, after all.

You can always link to the locked thread/post for context.
