    You are asking your question at the wrong NG, I have cross posted to
    internetexplorer.general NG. There you will find IE experts.

    What PA Bear and other dubious MVPs have started is now getting imitated by
    more users: rather than recommend a change in venue, they make an
    unsolicited move of someone else's thread to somewhere they have deemed by
    their own bias as a more appropriate newsgroup. This is trollish behavior.

    <rant_start>
    If the OP wishes to move or copy their discussion to another group, that
    should be *their* choice and not as an UNSOLICITED action enforced by you.
    Despite the pretense, you are not a moderator or admin but just another user
    who is propagating the OP's discussion to different group(s) that you have
    divined are more appropriate and to possibly enlarge the audience or
    hopefully provide a more focused community on the topic but which may not be
    a correct action. The actual source of the problem may turn out to not be
    relevant to those other groups simply based on what the OP reported as the
    symptoms and upon what you based your decision to forcibly redirect someone
    else's discussion. If the OP wants to move or copy their discussion to
    another group, that should be THEIR choice and not yours. You should only
    recommend to the OP that there may be more appropriate or useful groups to
    which the OP should repost or cross-post their message, not enforce the
    propagation of the OP's discussion to other groups.

    A misguided urge to enlarge or change exposure for a discussion based on
    your biases or presumptions is not an adequate reason to alter the
    Newsgroups header. Recommend the OP should move. Do not SHOVE them over.
    It should be the OP's choice as to where they focus their discussion, not a
    forced change made by you. Despite trying to help, forcing a redirection of
    someone else's discussion is trollish behavior. Suggest the change, don't
    force it.

    I think you are over-reacting.

    "Forcing" a cross-post to a more appropriate group is going to help the
    OP in this situation. It's not as if the thread will no longer appear in
    the windowsxp.general newsgroup. If OP sees the replies (even those made
    by those who read it in the internetexplorer group) in the general
    group, no harm is done. The crosspost is bringing those who have more
    specialized and focused experience into play.

    There is an added bonus as well. From now on, if OP has an IE-specific
    question, he knows the best group to make the post in.

    HEY VH!
    I will take what you write in consideration, OK I'm done!
    In the mean time what logical answer have you supplied to the OP? MOUTH!
