Lately there has been a rather alarming trend going through my inbox.
Quite a few different people send me a PM when they want my opinion on a particular scope choice. I am quite flattered, but that trend is reaching proportions that defeat the purpose of having an open forum.
The idea behind a forum like this is that it gives you a chance to ask a question once and get a number of responses from many people. If you want my personal opinion (which is very flattering), I will be more than happy to provide it in an open forum. I assure you that my advice in an open forum will be the same as the one in a PM.
If a question is something that, for whatever reason, you would rather not post for everyone to see, then by all means send me a note.
Otherwise, start a thread with your question and if you want me to look at it, go ahead and let me know that you started a thread.
PS. I will be out of town for a couple of weeks starting tomorrow morning, and I will not be particularly responsive in the meantime.
