It amazes me how many people can’t take two seconds to read my profile. I even used stars to accentuate a certain statement. Yet once a week, I’ll get a question sent to my inbox, instead of posted on the board. Look, I don’t mind if you send me a link to a Yahoo Answers question, but please don’t send the question directly to me:
(1) I may not know the answer, and someone else might.
(2) I don’t get credit for the answer, and people who might have the same question can’t search for that answer.
Don’t get me wrong, if you have a follow-up question to one of my answers, by all means send me an e-mail. Just don’t randomly e-mail me with a question – I’ll respond with an email that says the following:
“You didn’t read my profile.”
