maybe cos people aren't always responding directly to one person. I don't look at one person and and see them as the all encompasing oracle and feel the need only to take that point on board. Sometimes in a 20+ page thread - people take in a variation of posts and thoughts before replying. So shoot me for generalising, and taking on board 20 points of view against 1. I don't have the time to digest all of this! Such is life. Take is with a pinch of salt, it's a forum after all. As long as people are polite and don't insult, there's room for it right.
