This is great. We can all learn or be reminded on how to ask questions  
in this forum.

Looking through the list, there are some questions that get good  
responses. It seems that *how* the questions are asked has a lot to do  
with this.  In this case, I would start with "Be precise and  
informative about your problem."  If one starts with a question that  
is only one sentence, I do not see how this can be considered  
informative.  One may need to explain in as much detail as possible  
what your asking, why your asking, and put it into perspective. We all  
come from different backgrounds and might be able to help-- 
nonetheless, one needs to put some work into asking the question.
