Thanks for your mail about "How to Ask Questions the Smart Way".
As a reminder, that essay suggests (generic) ways to ensure 
you're asking technical questions in the right way, in the right place.

People write back for one of two _very_ different reasons:

o  Good reason:  Sending feedback/suggestions to help improve the essay.
o  VERY BAD reason:  Asking essay co-author Rick Moen for technical help.

Guess what?  99% of such mails are for the VERY BAD type of reason. 
If you're about to do that, STOP.  Do something else.  Anything.
Don't act like a moron:  Rick Moen is _not_ your personal, private 

The other 1% of you who want to discuss ways to improve "How to Ask 
the Smart Way", thank you!  Please reach Rick at "".

This is an automated e-mail.  (Your mail has not reached a human.)

Thanks! Mr. Autoresponder
