Very well said, dws. I do think you're preaching to the choir, though - I don't think the monks who post complete answers to obvious "do my homework" questions will be swayed by your arguments...they seem, to me at least, to be more interested in the XP :) Perhaps a concerted effort to downvote such answers would dissuade them (the XP-whores I mean)?

    -- from me on this one. You call for making an assumption about the intent of an individual, which in turn was based on an assumption about the intent of the original poster. I don't know about you, but I don't like to judge others on such volatile grounds. Don't do it unless you are willing to stand up for your -- by stating so in a reply to the alleged XP whore.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      You've read far more into my post than was intended. I'd originally added 'but who would want to make that call? Certainly not me!' but on re-reading thought that the message was clear enough without it so removed it. Obviously I should have left it in.
