Is that true, too, when there is much silence for a longer period of
time and no central place to carry those vital information?
How would you know that somebody has dropped out or changed mind
when there is little overall activity and publicity left?

I know, that's why I was asking them (or generally anyone who
considers himself an authority to answer my question about "borg").

Aye... I wrongly assumed that in a generally silent place every post
would rise enough attention on its own.
Actually, James' initial reaction has built up that impression.

I do for the things that I can.

So I should safely ignore any and all "borg" complaints?
If I'm not mistaken, even you once in a while used that word.

It's just a little bit. At least it seems so.

Hmm... I'm sorry for this ... at least initially I started with
simple questions.

Heh, I know, that's how things start, but then they get complicated
by many participants, opinions and details (and time constraints
forcing one to combine answers).
