There is no comprehension issue on my end, if his email went to spam,
and it was not there, as I did not see it in my spam folder upon a
subject search, then there is a issue yes, but not a comprehension
issue.  If you were quoting one of his replies on his behalf without an
attribution that is a comprehension issue created by your lack of proper
attributing so one would automatically assume you were quoting yourself,
but that can't be the case because reading over gname shows that I
properly comprehended and replied to everything just skipping a direct
reply to him and flowing off you onto him.  Ignoring context somewhat
yes, but so be it since I was trying to help with his issue, it was lazy
helping, but hopefully he will reply to it with what I want to know.

I think you might want to read my reply again?  As the last email I see
from him on this subject (with broken quoting mind you) says: "how is it
possible that gnome-panel isn't installed? when i installed natty
gnome-panel was installed."  As shown here:

While my reply was harsh yes, it was not improper either, as I still do
not care if you had any issue understanding what version of Ubuntu you
are/where or are going to be on when you reply and make replies to a
subject, and I do and will not care if you had an oops stupid moment
because that is your problem. I only care that gnome-panel was NOT
properly installed for him, and I would like to know more about it so
that I can help with HIS issue.
