Site Feedback: Response time is OK now; my continuing befuddlement on how this web site works...

My response time seems to be back to normal now, so thanks to whoever fixed it.

I'm still confused how to use the site.    I posted a reply to, and got a response from Maury Pepper which ended up as a separate thread that is disconnected from my response.  If I reply to Maury's comment, I would be forking the conversation into two threads.

Also, I am getting "out of office" email replies from folks, apparently echoed from notifications delivered when new messages are posted to the OSEHRA fora. 

And, I am getting daily digest messages saying that there are zero messages in the digest.

This makes it really confusing to try to carry on a conversation...
