I don't know what you're talking about. Maybe if you dropped the
"Computerese" and wrote in plain English, I could understand what you're

on a milk carton claiming I was lost, that I'd have to write someone a
letter of explanation to say I wasn't lost? And how do I *really* know
I'm not lost, anyway? I'd prefer that you just leave me alone.

I've been in court before, and I know how lawyers like to insist on Yes
or No answers, but it rarely works for me. I just get so confused....
