Have you emailed me?

I am getting more and more mail from forum members who ask me to resolve their problems on a one to one basis. This started some time ago, but it's become a bit of a problem.

I can't do this for two good reasons:-

1. I just don't have the time.

2. It wouldn't be fair to other forum users.

The whole idea of the forum is that we can all watch the story unfold, and later on other people with the same problem can search the archive for the solution. If I answer questions privately by email the information isn't subsequently available in the archive.

I'll still look forward to hearing from you about anything related to forum activity in general.

I might ask;

are they fairly new members who are not aware of how to post questions

are they members who are not getting questions answered as fast as they might wish

or maybe they think that they send the question to you who then posts it on the forum for them;(ie that it all goes through YOU first)

and, I would think that your inbox is getting rather full up with all those questions plus the "normal" traffic ::))

and now I ought to get to bed, having done yet another "taxi service" run for the family:)and work for me in 4 hours" time....yawn ...zzzz
