Not A Poet
Re: your question on reposting. One reason reposting is discouraged is to conserve storage. If you just change a few words, maybe you can just describe the changes in the current thread. Use your judgement. However, if you make major changes, it is usually acceptable to start a new thread. If you do that, you should indicate it is a repost in the subject, just as a courtesy to your readers.
BTW, I like the revised version better too. It just seems to hold together better, doesn't ramble so much.
Kirk, I like you disclaimer.
