My mail program shades in all the listings on the log with the same
subject as the one selected ( I keep my  log chronologically).  I was
startled to notice that for several days it treated "could care less"
and "can do so much" as the same subject as if it was correcting the
posters.  It was the same subject at one point, but I didn't find
"could care..."(was "can do...").  Whatever it was that triggered this
seems to have worn out .  At any rate the"can do"'s don't show up
shaded any more.
