I don't know if this is the right place to post this question, but I could \nnot find a category that looked right. I hope I can explain this properly.\n\nI saw a thread with a subject that looked interesting, but when I clicked on \nthe original post in that thread, there was no text in the message pane. It \nwas just blank. When I clicked on the first reply to that post, the message \npane showed the reply, as well as the quoted original post. There were a \nnumber of messages back and forth between the original poster and people who \nreplied. None of the messages by the original poster contained any text and \nI could only find out what they had said by reading one of the replies to \ntheir message, because the reply contained the quote of their text. \nI am using ie8 and XP, SP3. Does anyone have an explanation for this weird \nthing?
