If you'll read back carefully, you'll see that I was well aware who the
original source of the material was. "IB" at present only refers to one
person: HMH. I was just letting Jim know that it was POSSIBLE to
discover a meaning for your sentence, and I provided the most obvious
one. Granted, it didn't make a lot of sense, but a lot of stuff from you
has the same problem.
