You haven't been following this newsgroup lately, have you?

Yes, there's a workaround for Google's broken interface. The problem
is that the *default* "reply" button works incorrectly, and no amount
of explaining the problem prevents newbies from using the wrong
button.

The following advice:

If you want to post a followup via groups.google.com, don't use
the broken "Reply" link at the bottom of the article. Click on
"show options" at the top of the article, then click on the
"Reply" at the bottom of the article headers.

has been posted in this newsgroup over 1000 times. Many people figure
it out once it's explained, but there's no shortage of people who
haven't yet heard it.

I voted, but why in hell is this even a vote question? It should have
been corrected months ago.

I wonder whether to give the benefit of doubt to Google guys and think
that they actually missed it!!! or that they deliberately not fixing
this issue, due to their some kind of marketing strategy.
The whole reply-with-no-quote works fine for the web based reader (where
all/most of the thread is in one page) but not for non-web based clients
(like my ThunderBird..)

We must do something. This is something. Therefore, we must do this.

I am a newbie in newgroup. I saw some letters begin with `[OT]'.
Would any one tell me what does the [OT] stand for?

Thanks in advance.
