Gary, with respect -- looks like your battery question included an entire
archive after your new content! You can see it here:


Maybe have a close look when you compose in Gmail -- there is a
little "..." icon at the bottom that includes the whole history; you have
to click/expand/delete that little "..." to clear out the history. It's
definitely kind of hidden, and may be how you inadvertently sent that
massive post the other day.
