No problem John. Look at my first post in this topic. The opening is "Hello (your user name/Id)". Were I reading it, my name would follow after Hello. What the YOU CODE does is personalize the topic message, so that the reader of the message actually sees their name, where ever in the message you may choose to use. Example, you should see your user id here -> [you].

There are many public messages that I post, where personalizing the message is a good thing. It is just another feature (miniscule as it is) to help our readership here in the forums.
