And as an additional incentive, I point you to the section
near the end on "How To Answer Questions in a Helpful Way":

http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#id2889110

Everyone who thought this essay was only about *asking* questions
should read that, then go back and read the rest of it anyway. :-)

(And it's only 9957 or so words, not an ominous-sounding 10000!)
