It may be possible, IF you gave the assembled masses a clue about WHO
you are talking to.

Check the dates of the messages in the thread and it should become pretty
obvious.

If not, I was adressing the OP ("Nishant"), who has now started 3 different
threads dated about 55 days ahead.

Well that was cool. I haven't seen that before, but you became the OP when
you posted, which caused the confusion.

Instead of whining about it, perhaps you should ask him where the S&P is.

There is no original post on my news server to check. You have cut the
message so there's nothing to check there. All that appears is your message
with no references to what you are saying.

It's quite simple. Just post a message with the same title (not as a reply
but as a new message).

First of all, I wasn't "whining" about anything, but the OP has been asked
before to check his/her clock, hence the "capitilization".

Now, I happen to think that future posting is not only very rude, but also
extremely annoying. In this case, those 3 posts would have showed up on top
of all other posts for the next 2 months!

I posted 2 blank messages with the same title, just to push the thread back
in time, only in the third message did I ask the OP to check his clock.
Whining? Well, I guess your definition of that word must be different from
mine.

First, you have zero sense of humor. Next, you posted on a discontinuous
thread, meaning that many people had to go check their calendars instead of
just one. In fact if the OP is involved in only one thread, he/she might
very well be missing this thread entirely--there's nothing to point him to
it.

What newsreader are you using?

In OE, the OP shows up as a reply to my post:

While I agree with you that posters should fix their clocks, may I
respectfully suggest that, if incorrect dates have such a negative
impact on your reading experience that you consider a newsreader other
than Outlook Express.

Using decent newsreaders such as Mozilla, Thunderbird or Agent up to
their abilities makes time postings less critical.

May I also observe, your "hijacking" of the OP spot creates problems for
all that are having a higher impact than the incorrect clock.

Life is populated by humans... so we have to live with mistakes or be
doomed to live in eternal frustration.

Seriously-- in about 25 years of usenet experience, this is the only

There's a little more to it than that.

The newsgroup itself has no parent child relationships between messages.

Messages posted as a reply may have "Re:" added to the subject line and
a header with the message ID of the original message inserted but that
is a function of the news reader software used by the client and, of
course, whether the client chooses to use the "Reply" function in the
news reader software.

The _appearance_ of parent-child relationships is entirely within the
news reader software at the client end. Netscape, for example, sorts
messages by subject (ignoring "Re:" and other language versions) and,
when two or more messages have the same header, assumes that the
messages are part of a thread. Then messages with "Re:" or
back-reference headers are treated as replies. Messages without either
are sorted by timestamp and the later one becomes is treated as a reply
to the earlier.

Since Björn posted without using the Reply function, his message and the
original one from Nishant were sorted by timestamp and, because Nishant
has the date set incorrectly on his computer, Björn's was taken as the
originator of the thread.

I've seen it in a number of groups where people try to get to the top of a
list by using a future date. These posts often don't get answered, and the
person is usually asked to set their clock correctly- few seem to bother
answering so they seem to know just what they are doing.

i find it a nuisance too, so if u r using outlook express. what i always do,
just delete it (click once to highlight n press delete key).

i hope this will help u in future, lucky there aren't too many of ppl
wanting to jump queue.
