This Forum is very polite



     I'm amazed at the civility exhibited by the posters on this forum. On a couple of other forums that aren't as civil I routinely notice an advisory which is "RTFM". Suffice to say the first two letters represent "Read the" and the last letter represents "Manual". After browsing some of the "zero reply" posts tonight I'm beginning to think "RTFM" would be an appropriate response to many posts. When I read so many thoughtful replies to questions asked, I come to admire the answering people. They know so much more than I and are very generous with their time. But it rankles me that so many questions could as easily have been typed in to the Filemaker online help. In my opinion we learn by doing and less by asking (unless there's a truly unsolvable issue, and that's what this forum is all about).
