in reply to "running with scissors"

It sounds very reasonable to me.
I can't imagine how many times you have answered the same questions with the same answers. It just gets old after a while. The newbies will still be confused by your answer (no change there :) but someone that has the time, patience and experience will surely fill in the details. Some times there are too many details floating around here. I would still find it helpful to find your notes, just in case I did not see an obvious flaw.

On the same token, dont feel that you have to respond to the same questions over and over. I think there are enough users here that somebody will answer the more trivial questions. Just reply to what you like. It is not like you need points Saint merlyn :)

Beside I guess you could always edit your sig to apologize in advance for curt/confusing responses :)
