I think part of the problem these days or so it seems (I'm generalizing...) is that people don't research or read documentation or try searching Google for their answers first. They like the quickness of 'jump to aid' of forums and whatnot. Some of the questions that seem to come up repetitively here are simple and really quite easily answered if one just re-reads the documentation OR search. I think it happens partly due to coding day in and day out, one often times misses their mistake. The problem is the familiarity of the code. Always good to have a second pair of eyes to take a look and see the inane error. But a second pair of eyes and opinions are not always necessary and should never take the place of one's own research and learning of the language. So, those who are new here - never forget to use Super Search or Google or re-reading of documentation first!! - Moon
