I don't think it wasn't popular it was just that probably like myself I 
didn't remember her saying she didn't have Chloramine.

Easy thing to do in a busy mailing list.

And as you say we all know about the dangers of Chloramine in our hobby.

Which is why when I'm replying to a person I know that there are dozens of 
people who are going to read my advice who may have not read the whole 
thread so I go into 'teacher mode'.

This is a certain technique you have to do when posting. After 26 years on 
electronic mailing lists it kind of becomes 2nd nature. ;-)
