John -
To underline the importance of subject tags, if anyone is seeking an older post in the archives, all posts are listed only by months and subject tags. If the topic strays from the original subject and the tag isn't changed, one can spend a lot of time bringing up posts which are off topic, or just simple comments like, "I agree", which probably should be sent offlist.

Instead of printing out this entire longish post, I recommend highlighting the subject tags, copying them to the desktop, pasting them to a word processor file and saving for future reference, then printing out from there to save about two pages, and have something that will be recognizable.
