You might have started down the list, or are looking for something. If I see you in the market, I may just wave, or I might approach for a long discussion. You are free to tell me you cannot talk right now or to approach me. You would be very rude to hide your face from me in the market, especially if I had seen you first. :)

> I know it is not my problem but personally I hate being ignored when I am asking a question, especially if what I am asking is in relation to trying to assist a member on his problem. In that regards, I think Yousfi and I see eye to eye. So those things that I hate being done unto me, I try not to do to others as well.

> Let us say I am the one asking assistance from a specific member then I see and knew that he is online; then he went out without a reply to my query, personally I will wonder deeply why he has not responded to me. Especially if it happens repeatedly. I may go to the notion like "have I in some ways done something wrong unintentionally to annoy this guy, for him to continuously ignore me?" or things like that. Of course, he may be just also busy like most of us but that is what I am trying to prevent members to think of me, that I am ignoring them.

> Before I am always on the list of onlines but these days I chose to remain anonymous because as I have said I am very busy lately. But despite being busy, there are times I still go inside foxite whenever there is a crack in my slot just to check what is going on. Or to simply read and appreciate some brilliant solutions offered to members without any intention to participate, not that I don't like to but because I simply can't as time does not permit at the moment. And by doing so, I am relieving myself of unnecessary pressure to respond outright and divert my time away from my real work.

Can one post as an anonymous member? It is only yourself that is providing that perception of pressure. I don't believe I've ever watched for a particular member to answer my question and been annoyed if s/he didn't before going offline. :)

We have enough youth. We need a fountain of smart!
There may be many ways to skin a cat, but there are very few right ways to do it.
