FYI your reply didn't add any value. So I guess you shouldn't have posted it. My problem is with the original non-question and the frequency that stupid non-questions/questions appear on this list. If people ask stupid questions, it's about time people got picked up for it; or this list will deteriorate into questions that can be looked up in the handbook, faq or archive. I *expect* as a courtesy to the other people on this list that any poster who has a question has done his homework before posting. Too frequently that is not the case. In which case, IMO, they're just being rude and wasting other people's time quite apart from bandwidth. When they do that (and compound their original sin) they deserve every bit of abuse & scorn poured upon them. > It's a great question to consider before sending. The purpose > behind the open source movement is to contribute value to one another. No lectures on what the OS movement is or isn't thanks. I added "value", the original poster added fuck all apart from sarcasm. I simply took a large stick to the ratbag for doing so. How about answering the original question? I think it went something like this: "There's a website broken." Well, Jason, how about answering? Or are you more interested in getting on your high horse than casting light about this mysterious broken website?
