Choose your topic/subject line carefully to obtain the best replies.
Non-specifics like "Help" or "Question" make it more difficult to search

baiting or unwarranted flaming is prohibited.

behavior as defined in this FAQ. This is not intended as censorship, but
rather, to prevent the newsgroup from turning into a cesspool. Please
