God no!  Several times a month?  That's unforgiveable.  

Hell, it took me less than 1/2 of a second to download this entire string of
messages.    We aren't living in the dial-up age any more. 

I have a delete key on my keyboard.  I can use it.  If I don't want to see
something, it takes a mere second to delete it.  

If we can't hand le something off topic "several times a month", then we are
indeed pitiful, and our hobby deserves to die with us.

First of all, it is not occasional. It is several times a month, and usually
from the same person.

Second, these answers are easily available with a wonderful new thing called
Google. People that ask questions like this are being lazy.

Finally, Andrew himself has railed against people that aren't
"experimenters", yet he is the one constantly pestering others for help
instead of figuring things out for himself.

So to answer Andrew, yes, I am tired of "the constant bombardment of emails
from people who just can't get it together".
