But I guess what I could have done if I wanted to include all the separate replies is _indicate_ that your reply was in response to the OP. In other words, for the header, I could have shown it this way:

I think that would have created the right context while making it completely clear that your response was in reply to the OP, not to Pubkeybreaker.
The situation where a reply has to be spliced in doesn't come up much, but in the future, if the situation does arise, I'll provide a clarifying note to indicate which post a spliced-in reply is in reference to.
