Get reading help.

I did not introduce the term "netkook" in this thread. Its Miles Bader.

Infact, every single derogatory label that has been introduced in this
thread is by someone other than myself.

All I am asking for the resumption of and completion of the ideas
advanced by Thien-Thi towards the subject of discussion in this

Good usage of the language would help us become a contributor which I
earnestly aspire to be.

Remember, gnu software movement was about sharing source code and
comments (and explanations and good programming ideas) are part of the
same. Its not tutoring service. Those withholding the simple reply are
the ones dragging this unnecessarily. I have seen development threads
where there is a question like this. Someone wanted a code review
which begs the question of checking and giving ideas.
