Well, I don't claim I have the whole picture, which is why I asked the
question in the first place, and you didn't reply to the original query
anyway. I can accept that you snap at me like that, but what I don't
accept is that you don't offer an explanation as to why the "click"
messages are particularly useful to you.

Have a _nice_ day.
