The "How Scientific Are You?" thread had acted as a trollerization.
"Suzanne" decided to enlighten us by explaining what was going on.

PC Talk:
Well, do you mind if I tell you something?  I think you
formed sentences above with spaces in between,
but unless you put in a ">" between lines, in some
systems, the lines collapse, and all are wedged
together.  Also, you probably wrote this out, put it in
draft, and when you copied it, it added the ">'s" to the
beginning of your sentences.  The best way to get a
letter out of draft, if you have an e-mail window that does
not provide a way  is to go to "edit" above and click on
"select all" and then put your cursor on the now blackened
out text, right click on it and select "copy", then close out
that, (alternative if mouse supports it right click and choose
"select all" on the window that will come up on your screen
go to the newsgroup, and once in there click on
"Compose Message", and then paste what you have to
the new form that is presented to you, and erase the
heading in the part that you just pasted in.  Then be sure
that the Subject line has exactly the title of the thread you
are posting to in it, including the "Re:" :)

Because your post collapsed, I came along and read it
and concluded the guy who wrote it must surely be very,
very confused, what with all the random ">'s" everywhere,
and collapsed form.......and how do I know all this? It
happened to me one time.
