   of service of the answer, unless otherwise directed by the Commission.
   The reply shall contain statements of relevant, material facts and
   legal arguments that respond to the factual allegations and legal

   defense and of any facts supporting such affirmative defense that are

   arguments set forth therein.

   (d) The reply shall include an information designation containing:
