    Do not listen to mmalc; please feel free to ask any question that comes
    to your mind.
    There are few possibilities in which you may not receive a replay:

    1. if the answer to your question was obvious, then someone may feel
    like "this guy should google before posting" and not replay to you (or
    simply send you a some-how-useful link),
    2. if the answer to your question is too complicated, and someone knows
    the answer, then s.he may not want to write an essay via e-mail to
    answer it (or, again, will replay with a link or some superfluous
    hint),
    3. the answer is too complicated to any one to know a straight answer...

    almost in any other case, you will receive a replay!

    In any case, I will try my best ;^)

    But I have to agree in something... go to the docs first, then google,
    then search the archives and, if there is not answer to your question
    there, then post it.

      More bad advice, I'm afraid. As mmalc is a moderator on this list, I
    would certainly recommend against "not listening".

      The comment could easily have been taken as asinine or even rude (I
    admit I cringed a bit when I read the phrasing) but the spirit of the
    message holds true to any technical mailing list.
