Not to add fuel to the fire or take this too far off topic but this
exact thing crossed my mind this morning when I read the posts. There
are almost never any summaries posted by some and the balance of
give/take seems heavily weighted toward take.
I may be off the mark here but I am wondering if the lack of summaries
is related to the poor linguistic skills of said offenders? Not that
mine is all that great mind you. It seems some people (not all) overseas
have a hard enough time cobbling the words together to ask their
question, let alone edit and format a summary for all of us. (when I say
poor linguistic skills I am referring to written English as applied to
this email exploder, some may speak wonderfully in their native
It would be very nice as you said if they would post a summary, even if
it was only a "copy & paste" summary.
No backlash from me and I have no ill feelings toward foreigners in
general. If you're going to participate in this system though you should
be willing to share any knowledge you gain with the rest. That is, after
all, the whole point of this, isn't it?
I'll quit while I'm ahead.
