If at least marginally on-topic (whatever that may be:-), "snip" out
the parts that don't pply to your reply. ... "snip" refers to the
sound a pair  of scissors make as you do the necessary cutting ... But
you knew that:-);-)

If you go off on a tangent, by all means do start a new thread, or
change the subject, to reflect the new direction of the (sub-)thread.

At least ... that's my very humble opinion...
