Bob...I was the one that posted the initial message.

1) It had nothing to do with you.
2) it was prompted by the appearance of an e-zine to which I
subscribe.
3) I picked Requirements document because it was a request that been
posted several weeks/months ago. It stuck out in my mind because I
was working on Req Docs and had done the research (no, I'd never seen
one before, either). I'd responded rather harshly with a similar
message as was directed by the e-zine because I'd used the internet
for successful research at the same time someone had posted the
request with obviously no research.
4) The fact that "there were a couple of requests along the sme lines
at about the same time" demonstrates that people are posting requests
with no previous search of the archives of this list alone, let alone
the ubiquitous internet.
