The right way to ask questions online

Please read and apply:

  1. learn how to ask smart questions: How To Ask Questions The Smart Way by Eric Steven Raymond and Rick Moen;

  2. learn how to report bugs: How to Report Bugs Effectively by Simon Tatham (and bad bug reports on Everything);

  3. and a final advice from Jeremy Zawodny:
    Don't change the Reply-To address when replying. If the person who responded to you wants the traffic to stay on the list, there's probably a good reason for it.
