I don't want to speak for Bev or Stan, but I don't think they
were saying that at all. IMHO I think the point they were trying
to make is that someone should do their own investigating before
posting a question to the entire list. If, after this thorough
investigation they discover that they still aren't sure of
the answer, they can freely ask for help.
