You know, some answers (must) exceed the size of the question (or quote), and people begin to address aspects that haven't been aimed for at 1st. Still, they are (at least in the first few responses) related, part of a whole issue. And to get the whole picture, you have to see all parts, at best read them all _before_ replying to _any_ of it. Otherwise people focus on minor or even irrelevant details to turn attention away from the necessary issues and lose the big picture. Does this mean you want me to split the mail up for you to read 1 passage after the other? What's that different than editing each passage on your own as time permits? -- © Rado S. -- You must provide YOUR effort for your goal! EVERY effort counts: at least to show your attitude.
