Given the number of people on this list, if everyone responded with "I don't know" whenever they didn't have an answer to a question, the list traffic would be horrendous.

Hi,

 Which inquiry are you referring to?  I wouldn't take it personal if you should 
happen to not get a response to a question.  It's possible that no one had an 
answer.  There has been instances too where I've put up questions within email 
lists and didn't get an answer.  As for the childish bickering that you've come 
across and we've all seen, I just ignore it myself.  If you start to see a 
thread going awry, just ignore it.  Probably the worst thing you could do is 
send a response to a thread like that.  It only encourages the thread to 
continue.  If you give it a while, usually the thread will just die on its own. 
 If not, there's always that handy delete key.

 Michael

Hey folks!

   I have entered several friendly inquiries with no response.
   I read the constant back and forthing by a few members who seem to get along 
nicely with other but ignore others.
   From a newcomers perspective, you sound like a bunch of underworked children 
with too much time on their hands.
   My question is, are you looking for oppertunities to solve problems or are 
you a social club with insiders capturing all of the cyberspace in the web site?
   Much of the info is great.  Some of it is just so much garbage.
   Please let me know if you are in the business of solving problems or just 
wasting time on repetitive, childish interplay.
