True. I was too harsh. Again I will point out that you can never change the
habit of millions. Some people only post once and disappear. Others are
very much absorbed by UseNet. The ones who post just once are often those
who need assistance more than others. I wish they expressed their problem,
however, in more than 2 lines (or a subject line with void body).
