I've posted this several times over a 5 year time period, but I feel its worth repeating since we do have many new
members. When we get a large number of new members, I do believe it is important for all to read this.

from looking.

- Use all CAPITAL Letters (that is Internet way of yelling)
- Use the words HELP, IMMEDIATE, DESPERATE, etc. Words that seem to imply you are desperate can turn people off.

- Ask if anyone might know
- Say, I have a question

The wording of a subject line is so very important. There are over 20,000 International members on this site, wording
is so very important when you are looking for responses.
