things by showing only that line. Here's the new wording of the entire note:

Note: The transmitter information is always present. The absence of the "Sender:" field is sometimes mistakenly taken to mean that the agent responsible for transmission of the message has not been specified. The absence of the "Sender:" field merely means that the transmitter is identical to the author and is therefore not redundantly placed into a separate field.



ps. my motivation for pursuing this issue is that, in effect, I want to highlight that the agent responsible for posting really has been stated "explicitly". But it merely has not be coded "differentially"...
