    It’s an interesting assumption, considering that we are talking to each other right now. At least I assume so. Usually in my experience people note that they’re not directly replying to someone because otherwise it does get very confusing.

    Not that it matters, really. I’m more interesting about the em dash thing, that supposedly changed the meaning. I just don’t see how.

    E: I just realized that them not directly addressing me, who posted the link to New York Post but everyone in the thread posting New York Post links doesn’t change the meaning, just the target. lol

    I would be really intetested to hear how you imagined the em dash would change the meaning and what the intended meaning was.

    was even talking about you

    If you reply to people and seemingly talk directly to them then most would assume you are talking to them. I don’t think any amount of em dashes clarifies that it’s meant in some vague fashion.

    You can have the last word

    Muchos gracias.
