Or you're just another person on the net wanting to ask an off-topic
question in tangent to a thread and being polite by taking it off
list.  I get between 300 and 500 messages a day, and it's got to be a
bad day for SA to miss more than two spam (zero missed is average).
Like I'm ever going to remember every piece of email I send.

Well, at that point, why not just pack up the computer and ship it
back to the vendor?  You'll get about as much mail either way then.

No, public forums are not for private replies to people.  If you can't
be bothered to leave an open, accessable channel of communication,
don't interact with people online.
