I can only presume from the tone of this response message that my message 
offended.  As I said it was not meant to do so.

At no time did I say there shouldn't be OT messages (I presume from Anner's 
last comment that that is what she inferred), in fact I said that I was 
interested in the start of that conversation on Rare Plants but it wandered 
off the topic and I felt that it would have been helpful if the subject had 
been changed to reflect this.  I suppose it'll be just taken as me being 
selfish that I actually want to be able to take a part in this list and that 
I do not have the time to scan every message regardless of its topic to find 
out if it actually pertains to the subject line or whether it has wandered 
off.  Obviously suggestions are not welcome.  My apologies for wasting all 
your time.
