Not only that, but people who have taken their valuable time to
research and write a thoughtful reply will often find that someone else
has already answered the question in another group and they've wasted
their time. This has happened to me enough times that if I notice that
the message is a multi-post, I won't bother to get involved even if I
know the answer. Like this time.
