    That won't work with the PA Bear... he uses a broken newsreader that
    cannot go back to a previous post.

    You will have to re-post everything you write into every followup
    or he won't be able to work with it!
    Don't forget to also put in everything HE wrote, or he will be
    very angry. And you don't want to deal with an angry bear.
