Thanks. I knew what the notation meant. The problem is the referents.

I don't count things like this. I get hundreds of e-mails a day and I 
don't want to have to re-read the quoted e-mail over and over.

It is more work for me to have to do that than it is for everyone 
here to take the trouble to write an actual phrase explaining what it 
is they agree with.

If you all want your opinions to register with me, you'll do that. +1 
doesn't mean anything to me.

I tend to ignore the content of messages which say "+1". OK? Please 
take my own limitations on board. If you want your voice to be heard, 
please use real words.
