as already explained, thread was already open: I will not spend any more
time (that I don't have) to add any single line why I didn't (or I forgot to)
add the description of Openfoam...

Wrong. There is a discussion about two month ago. Your new message is
not part of that thread and makes no reference to it.

I'm done discussing this.

You are totally incorrect....

If your "announcement" message had been part of a thread, it would have
contained at least an "In-Reply-To:" and a "References:" but *it did not*.

Also, you make the fatal assumption that *everyone* on the list was "on
the list" two months ago when you originally talked of OpenFoam. You
also fatally assume that those on the list actually keep all the
messages from the list and could see you thread in their mailers. I,
for one, keep only 14 days of messages. So, even if your message was
part of a thread I would not see it the original.

You don't have any time to add a single line of explanation, but you
certainly have time to try and explain why you just couldn't be bothered
with being informative.

Long before Google came manners. You might like to look those up on
google too

Which is a good way to damage the world's view of Openfoam and make them
associate it with badness. All you had to do was say 'See the older
thread for more info, its a program for XYZ'

Meanwhile the only foam is staying on my beer, and its not open 8)
