Hi everyone,

Just my $0.02:  This list prides itself on having a good attitude 
toward questions; we're all champions of the idea that anyone can ask 
anything and receive a civil answer.  Specifically, we avoid the kind 
of dismissive or hurtful comment that one would find when asking a 
newbie or "obvious" question on other lists.

It's time to extend that courtesy to answers, as well.  Tkil took the 
time and effort to lay out a detailed, thoughtful approach to Joel's 
problem, and it was dismissed rather rudely.  If it was me, I'd think 
twice before answering any plea in the future, and that's probably not 
where we want this group to head.
