OK. I wasn't aware of that. Of course, this only matters during contests.
It was during a contest that I learned about this from @bertwert;
but I disable that option all the time. I've found that if my posts are joined together,
someone might respond to one, thinking that s/he has responded to all of them, when the other is actually more important to me - so I separate them.

Good reason. How do you disconnect them?

I think I have this right:

In the upper left side of the main screen there is the entry "Forum"

You press it, then "My Account"

On the resulting screen press "Edit Options" most of the way down the page.

Fairly far down the page, "Auto-Merge Double Posts" has "Yes" selected by default - change that to a "No"

Done! Thanks again. I read through all the options. Been a member for about 8 years and never checked these settings!
