I'm sorry, you're correct, Mark.  I forgot you told me earlier how to
write such a handler which I implemented successfully.  You said:

So I guess the real question is "how do I postpone that handler until
AFTER the check for whether the poster is a member?"

After reviewing the original implementation instructions I think I can
fix the problem.

Consider the problem solved unless I run into problems.

Thanks so much!
