On this forum, almost no posts remain unanswered. So the complaint that "I don't get a response" does not hold here. My original point stands. I don't mind at all being contacted personally. BUT: every time I am, the questioner has a problem that almost certainly others share. A personal reply does nothing to educate anyone else. Further, a personal reply cuts off the rich information that might be added by another "expert." No matter how much one of us knows, there will be others with other solutions to most conundrums.

The great strength of this forum, as with the lighting forum and Vegas forum (the three where I hang out) is that questions are answered, and the answers form an ever growing data base for future seekers of a solution.

Personal contacts are great... for personal contacts. They help no one else.
