ej and anyone else,

First of all, it's a suggestion, so do with it as you wish.

Next, I wasn't addressing you alone, though it was your recent posts that prompted the suggestion. You aren't the only one by any means.

Last, if I ask you do do something, I should be certain you know how to do it. (unless I'm setting you up for a consensual spanking! ;-} )

Here's how:

Voy provides the entire previous thread in the Type Your Message Here field.

So, two methods:

To delete all the previous thread:
1. Click anywhere in the Type Your Message Here field.
2. Press Control A or Command A (Mac). All the copied text from Voy is selected.
3. Start typing your response. Your first keystroke deletes all the selected material from Voy. If you like, you can also press delete and then begin typing.

To delete older threads and keep the most recent:
1. Click at the beginning of the text in the Type Your Message Here field.
2. Hold down the left mouse button and scroll down until you find the series of lines that has only one > preceding it. (You can also find those same lines, then click and drag to the top of the text.)
3. Press Delete. The last post in the thread remains, each line preceded by a >.
4. Place the cursor below the quoted lines and begin typing your response...
or...
Place the cursor before the first >, press Enter, then move up one line and begin typing your response on the first line.
