I am flooded with 20 projects. I do not have time to read the documents. Besides, every person who answers my question I give acknowledgement too, and it becomes one more notch on the belt of someone looking for industry recognition. And then there is the intrinsic value of helping someone. Unless, of course, you're someone who determines another's worth by some measure of "laziness". You placed that label on me. You do not know me. I could be lazy. Or I could be swamped with 20 projects at one time and do not have time to RTM. Or I could be someone who volunteers at animal shelters full-time, or working on community projects, or helping the elderly or troubled juveniles. All of these are activities, which may in fact, indirectly benefit you, if not the common good. And as to top-posting, some people prefer it. You don't have to scroll down to see the answer. And if it was so bad, why did Microsoft make the Outlook Express newsreader default to top-posting?
