How to refer to another poster's comment

I think I'm doing something wrong, or pressing the wrong button: I see in the top right corner quite a lot of folks can "re: (insert poster name here.) I will reply to a comment posted earlier, and it goes underneath the original comment, without the re: part. So it looks like I'm making a general comment, when I want to address a specific concern or question another poster has.

I hope what I just said makes sense. Sometimes it shows up, and most of the time it doesn't.

Thanks in advance, and thank you for a great website. I really enjoy participating, as well as learning so much!!

  1. Hmm, never mind. I'm thinking it's a timing thing. It does show up, just not initially.

    Thanks anyway!
