I understand. Your chances of getting a reply will improve if you migrate
away from Google Groups and choose to crosspost rather than multipost.
Having a spellchecker to abstain from typos adds to credibility too.

I should have said "netethical", not "ethical". That stuff which falls under
the posting habits heading is often referred to as "Netiquette".

I understand. In case you want to increase the likelihood of being replied
to, have a look at the following:
The new Google interface to Usenet newsgroups encourages a posting
style appropriate to a web forum, not Usenet. By default, the
previous message is not quoted.
Some people killfile everything that comes from Google Groups, usually for
that particular reason.
> Thanks and sorry to offend you,
No, no offence at all. It just tends to appear that way when no facial
impressions are involved. *smile*
