[BCAB] Frequently Asked Questions (was Sandra is thinking of...)

And as long as I ever participate on a list like this, I will always go out
of my way to answer questions, even if I know they have been asked before.
You never know when you might need help yourself, even when the subject has
been flogged to death.  Apart from anything else, you can always learn
something, or pick up a tip this way.  I try to save odds and ends as well,
just in case I ever need them, or can forward to somebody else.

Kind regards,

Oh indeed!
The only dumb question is the one you don't ask. :-)

Personally, as long as the subject line is clear enabling me to skip
messages if necessary, I think such questions should be encouraged.

it's not appropriate for anyone to get shirty with others for asking a
question which has been dealt with a couple of months back, or which to them
may seem elementary. I can think of one or two members of the list in
particular who are especially good at answering such questions patiently,
clearly and in a friendly manner.
