Oops. What I was trying to say was that, because the FAQ exists, people tend
to simply say, "check the faq." and that is the end. I didn't mean to accuse
you of doing that. It's a list-wide "problem." You and a couple others
always post the url to the specific page, which is very good, and much more
than simply saying "go check the faq." Sorry for making it sound like you
(or anybody for that matter) are the bad guy. It's the FAQ that's the bad
guy, allowing us to be lazy--which nobody, and I mean nobody can accuse you
of being. :-
