I am working through all of the issues that have not had the reply 
button pressed, and pressing it.  This is likely the first time you got 
a "reply" on this issue.  I am going alphabetically by section, but 
jumped ahead and checked based upon your query.  You need to give me a 
little time.  There are hundreds of issues in the database, and it takes 
a lot of time to research each one. As you can imagine, I have a day 
job, so this may take a little while.  Although typically issues are 
minor editorial changes that are agreed to and implemented - in those 
cases not much research is involved ;-)

I understand that you disagree with this decision, and have noted it in 
the database.
