Hmm... ok, thank you for the clarification, appreciated.

I usually do exactly that, when I'm at the PC or Laptop. But I'm replying
from my phone, as I have been at work and commuting to and from work and
unfortunately when I hit "reply" my phone just opens a new blank window to
reply, so my apologies... will see if I can adjust some settings on phone.

Yes, the financial profitabily is one major factor. Same old sad factuality
of human greed prevailing above all else.

Hail the god currency... sigh...

Not easy, but not impossible either to change such state of affairs, though.

Tda ;)
