I just realized I may have implied the OP refused to return to his/her own thread. I didn't mean that. The Genforum notification system is BROKEN and has been for a long long time. People who post a query are NOT notified when they receive replies. I wish Genforum would tell people this - it would help a lot to have an announcement! But anyway, for months we've observed people not returning to their own thread, and then returning finally and saying they never got a notification of replies.
This is not a problem of OPs but of Genforum.
However, would be good for everybody to be Heads Up and aware of this. When posting a query, people will have to choose to return to their thread voluntarily, without notification.
