No, you haven't.  You've replied to ANOTHER thread, hijacking that one.

Your message is not tied to its original thread in any way.  I, and many
others, will NOT find it when looking for a resolution to that thread.
Go back and find the message this thread really belongs to, and reply to
that thread.

NB:  Threads are not "threaded" by the text written in the subject line.
They're threaded by the message headers that say *this* message is
"in-reply-to" the "message-id" of the message that it's *actually* in
reply to, and a "references" header that lists the other messages in the
same thread.

[tim bigblack ~]$ uname -ipr i686 i386

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.

My goodness, Tim, you certainly need to be taught some manners, don't

He might need a lesson in manners but apparently so do you, since he is 100% correct that you hijacked a thread and mixed this thread in with another unrelated thread.
I was trying to thank the people who had helped me before (needless to
say that you weren't one of them) and let them them know that I have
found a solution.

A proper thank you would have been sent back to the original thread. The people who helped you there might not even look through this thread. Do you imagine that every person that subscribes to the Fedora List reads every thread in its entirety?
