Being a certified ignoramus, may I be allowed to say that I found 
somewhat otherwise?

Yes, occasionally, I too have gotten the "supercilious" response (who 
hasn't and of course who am I. at least in other realms, to cast the 
first stone?) The point is that the way I look at it, everytime I post a 
query, I am asking for a favor. So, all right, this may not warrant the 
occasional "unsatisfactory" response but then nobody is perfect. And 
being on the asking side makes be a bit more patient than I might 
otherwise be.

Best regards to all.
