Yeah, most of the time, peoples' problems *are* because they don't read 
the book. Granted, on occasion I *do* jump to that conclusion a bit 
early and unnecessarily, but past history makes it clear that many 
people just skip much of the text (and yes, a number of users who have 
problems have *admitted* to not paying much attention to the text - or 
frequently people do read but just forget some important part), which is 
what causes most problems.

Oh well, why am I concerned with your opinion of me...my primary 
interest is in ensuring that the book is both technically and 
grammatically accurate, as well as understandable for the 
non-expert...and that's true whether you think so or not. So, sometimes 
I happen to disagree on what might be "correct" or 
"understandable"...big deal, nobody's perfect...

I'd like to say something like "I don't care what you say so I'm just 
not responding to further comments" but then I know how much I always 
just *have* to add further responses (this one being a case in point), 
so...we'll see how I do...
