I guess the danger with quoting from MetaLink is that
a. Those who are not on Support Contracts and would not have access to MetaLink
also get to see the quote
b. A Bug might be updated after the quote is made and the nature
of the bug / rediscovery information might change.
That is why I starrted with "the latest Rediscovery"
and I did not quote the entire Bug text -- again so that
readers would want to and would read the Bugs themselves.
I read that and very specifically I stopped myself from quoting a lot of metalink text in the e-mail. I believe in the past (many moons ago, perhaps Jared will remember) there were objections to fully quoting (or copying full) articles from Metalink into the emails.
Hence I simply provided a bug# so interested parties can go search. I am not saying you did something wrong, but I just wouldn't do that in this lawyer happy world.
Or maybe you will luck out since uncle Larry is busy getting ready for the premier of a movie (Flyboys) he helped finance and his son is one of the actors. So he is in a good mood.
