It seems that was an explanation, not a request for help

No. It was another example of the Araucaria fan club in action. A sort of crossword web site within a crossword web site.

Sorry, I don't understand - but Araucaria is my favourite setter, so please explain.

AJT,
it was my way of saying to Trevor that his question was pointless.
People who post questions or raise other queries about Araucaria crosswords almost invariably do so in such a way that non-followers cannot possibly respond. They often do not spell out the clue etc. they are more holding a discussion than anything else.
I don't have a problem with that. It just means that to all intents and purposes a "strictly Araucaria fans only" thread is being run. A bit like the people who say something like "DT2345 3a, 13a,6d,9 and 17d". To anybody not in the know the opening posting of this thread is meaningless.
As I said, I don't have a problem with it. But that is the way it is.

AJT,
Yes, you have permission to join the club,LOL.
But lets face it. If all the "fans" of individual crosswords posted along the lines of "3,7,13,19d and 3,7,15a" this site would die. the logic of that seems irresistable to me.
