It was clearly a question that had nowt to do with PHP. Even your subsequent 
posts defending your position insisting that was a continuation of an earlier 
thread does not change the fact that it is a non-PHP question.

This is a pretty high volume list. It only works if people like Dan graciously 
give up their time to read the list and help where possible. If the list was 
full of off-topic posts then I'm pretty sure that the experienced users would 
be pretty p*ssed off and leave the list.

Some people like their answers on a plate -- you should've copied and pasted 
the relevant section/chapter from the manual. 

  Now _that_ is being helpful

No one can have a higher opinion of him than I have, and I think he's a
dirty little beast.
