> Only Dumb if Dumb Q2 actually turns up...
Not dumb questions, but they are somewhat dumb
subjects. It would be better to describe the problem
in the subject so that people know whether they might
be able to help. Imagine what it would be like if
everyone posted a subject like, "I have a question".

I'm not sure, but that sounds like some sort of
hokey Windows Live "community" feature that you
haven't signed up for.
As Meinolf Weber said, you're better off using a real
newsreader. "Webmail" (or Google groups ... or any webpage
-based newsgroup access) is a very awkward way to do
newsgroups. They weren't designed for that.
