What flaming? You clipped the quote, but Andre did indeed answer the
question. (Was he wrong?) He also politely gave further info/request, of a

I really dont understand your reaction Jeff. Andre did nothing to
indicate Phillipus was unwelcome. How do you propose new users should
learn these things? To correct a person is not an insult.
