This is known as hijacking a thread, and not considered good etiquette. The best thing to do is create a new topic for your specific question and link to the topic that prompted your question. This way each person gets individualized attention and it lessens the chance the subject matter will stray off course from the original posters issue.
Is it against protocol to insert these questions into the topic thread I am reading, kind of like a 'er, excuse me, I was wondering....'
It is best to break down your questions into individual questions. Also keep in mind that you might want to tackle each issue separately so that you do not compound the problem in a 'related' as you say issue. Also it is much easier to follow just one thread at a time so as to not confuse you and or the multiple people trying to assist you.
Must I break my list into topic areas, or can I post em all in one post? (f'rinstance, one is about firefox, one is about the task manager and one is about IE.
The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
