Please read:

How to ask a question:

2. Not everybody who answers FreeBSD questions reads every message: they 
look at the subject line and decide whether it interests them. Clearly, 
it's in your interest to specify a subject. ``FreeBSD problem'' or 
``Help'' aren't enough. If you provide no subject at all, many people 
won't bother reading it. If your subject isn't specific enough, the 
people who can answer it may not read it.

5. Don't include unrelated questions in the same message. Firstly, a 
long message tends to scare people off, and secondly, it's more 
difficult to get all the people who can answer all the questions to 
read the message.


You questions may also be very usefull for others at some time. If a 
mail is written well then it can be googled and they don't have to ask 
the same questions twice, this is true for most stuf at least.
