Hi David,

Thanks for your thoughtful reply; it's very appreciated !

By quoting you, asking, rhetorically, "why should Q&A be a place for trivial questions" in contrast to the statement about (in my perceptions) the C# discussion forum filling up with highly specific technical questions, that get quick-fix answers, I was using irony to make a point. I probably should have made that point more directly Smile | :)

I did not (and, would not) use the word "trivial" about any question posted here; you introduced that word into the conversation.

" 'Are' you a writer;" well, "yes:" in the sense that I have been involved in creative writing all my life, since age nine, or so (that's sixty years), and "yes," in the sense I have done a lot of technical writing.

But, I was also a programmer, who had his "fifteen minutes of fame" at Adobe back in the late bronze-age, when the "commercial religion" of "Desktop Publishing" was stolen from the Old God (Xerox PARC), and re-branded at Apple, Adobe, Aldus, Canon, etc. Which of course led to the defeat of the great powers LinoType-MonoType, whose swords of lead, antimony, and tin, and pathetic first-generation laser weapons, were no match for the power of re-cycled bronze and Madison Avenue advertising, and for an army composed of a genration of gadget-crazed technophiles for whom the "meaning of life" revolved around Cupertino, California.

But, to the extent my response to you implied your words had an ad hominem flavor, and made an inappropriate use of irony: then, "no," I'm not a writer, or, at least, not the writer I should be, and I deserve the vast obscurity I have attained Smile | :)

I'm going to dare posting a second comment on Q&A vs. Forums today.

yours, Bill
“Humans are amphibians: half spirit, half animal; as spirits they belong to the eternal world; as animals they inhabit time. While their spirit can be directed to an eternal object, their bodies, passions, and imagination are in continual change, for to be in time, means to change. Their nearest approach to constancy is undulation: repeated return to a level from which they repeatedly fall back, a series of troughs and peaks.” C.S. Lewis
