When asking a favor of another, a wise man would not offend his
potential helper. Many here (and elsewhere) will not reply to a top-
poster. You want some of my time then you had better take the minimal
effort to phrase and format your communication.
Less effort, actually. A trimmed insert-reply is not only a more
accurate communication, but faster to create, as well as faster to
read and comprehend.
