Common Messages Tutorial

What are Common Messages?
When message authors send the same message text out to different people, that is often referred to as "Common Text" on the net. Someone may say they have "a book of two for Phoenix" meaning a common message (same text) but for two different addressees in Phoenix. The message relayer will ask if the receiver has the "common text" or content of the message. Here are some common text messages:
