Top posting bottom posting whatever.... Like I said there are more 
important things in life to worry about.

And I'm not demanding anything - just trying to get a straight answer. 
Sometimes I think some of you guys imagine you are 'mystics' because a 
lot of the time the answers you give are pretty ambigious.

Anyway I didn't want to sound rude. I'm a straight talking person - and 
I think straighforward questions deserve straighforward answers.

No one 'expects' anyone to answer anything - but I wondered if perhaps 
possibly I wasn't making myself very clear about what it was that I was 

In this regard, I would therefore hope that I have been very clear now.
