It's like reading a stream of consciousness. Some people need three
attempts at giving the correct answer, what happened to the days of
only posting when you absolutely knew you were right ?

It's a bit like the recent "Filenames with spaces - and using a shell script."
thread, where six or seven people fired off wildly incorrect answers to
someone's problem, leaving the only correctly posted answer (taking into
account newlines using the null terminating options of find and xargs)
acting as the proverbial needle in the haystack.

People are sometimes more eager than helpful.
