To unlink the 'good' response from a junk thread, click the Move Message
choice, then "move" it to your own board! If you have a surname board,
in the box. Be sure to use all lower case. For the localities or topics
boards, you can do the same thing, copy/pasting
localities.northam.states (etc.) or
or browsing to your own board. Click submit, and the message will now be
'on its own' on your board.
