FYI, I agreed with what Stan was saying--it had to do with being
considerate; I NEVER said that I personally thought it was a
waste of *MY* time to reply to someone's question. In fact,
I've spent a great deal of my time scanning reference books
both at my desk and in our technical library helping people on
this List look for answers.
Agreeing with an idea does not mean I actively practice it. I
agree with capital punishment, but I don't go around killing
