Cat is a very good customer of ours.
Sometimes, a seemingly simple question, can take considerable time to answer, even if your a fast typist, which I am not.
Therefore, sometimes it is easier and far less time consuming, to call that person and answer the questions.
Unfortunately, others don't know what the answers were.
Many times, a simple question, simply answered, generates many other questions, and that is the basic purpose of this site.
As a business owner, I do not have the privilege of having much time, that I can spend on a computer. I have many owners who call daily. There are days that I must field as many as 100 phones calls, or better. That does not leave much time for typing.
There are several others who can answer questions, from their experiences, and/or their knowledge. Two years ago, this site was in it's infancy. Today, it's tremendous, with several thousand members.
Some members just read, some answer questions, some offer advice both theoretical and practical, some complain, some sit back until they can get on someones case, some promote businesses of their choice, and some post
erroneous information or supposed facts. A few have personal negative agendas.
You, therefore must weigh the various posts, and make your own choices, and decisions.
Human nature, and all too easily, encourages people to complain, but seldom compliment.
You may find many other "old" posts, that seemingly were never answered. Today, that's a rarity.
This site owner, and his appointed moderators (without pay) try very hard
to make this site the best. Unfortunately, they do not have any examples to work with, or to use as guidlines, since there has never been a site such as this one.
Therefore for them, as well as most of us, it's a collective learning process.
In time they have made many additions, corrections, and sometimes deletions.
They are not perfect, but do listen to suggestions.
On a scale of 1 to 10, they easily rate a 9.99.
Perfect no!! But what or who is?
