If my response bore no relation to the text I was replying: This means

Ah-ha. Now I understand. Earlier on in the conversation *you* were
talking about 2822. But SPF works with 2821.
So perhaps my response did not apply to your statement because your

If your statement *was* about 2822, then either:
-you confused 2822 with 2821
-you are intentionally making 2822 statements that are irrelevant to SPF
Either way, I give up, discussions like this are clearly a waste of time.
