Hi Myo

Knowing that 'Private Questions' have been causing you sleepless
nights, I have pondered this long and hard and I am now pleased to
inform you that, at last, I've found the PERFECT SOLUTION for you.

Here's what you can do:

Whenever you see a Private Question, for example, #3022:

'Legal Stuff for a new Business Venture in the UK'

You simply direct you own Identical Question under the Same Subject to
the Same Researcher.

And, in the Question box, you just enter 'As per #3022'.

Of course, it is highly likely that Admin will 'Flag' your Question
'for Review' but, importantly, as the Questioner you will still be
able to see all the Responses!

What do you reckon?

Hmm.

Bryan, as you are privy to #3022, I think you'll agree that seeing the
contents of that answer box out of context wouldn't be very satisfying
to Myo.

And as for the "simple maths question", you'll see that it has expired
unanswered. I doubt Myo would gain much satisfaction from seeing his
duplicate question go unanswered.

Regards,
Roger

Roger,

That sounds, indeed, like a possible solution. Besides, I could pick
the questions I wanted to see. Presumably, however, I would be
dependent on the researcher' also answerering my question, but still
miss the feedback, and I would have to accept that a researcher felt
the original question/answer shouldn't be revealed to even a paying
snoopy nose. I quess I could test his/hers fidelity to the questioner
with a wholloping price, but I wouldn't try that.

Of course, some rather cryptic titles, such as "simple maths
question", would be still be problematic. AND, if I or someone else
regularly did this, it might upset people wanting to post private
questions.

By the way, I have found my choice for the "simple maths question":
If Adam and Eve could only put one and one together, how did they
learn to multiply?

Many thanks for your inspiration, nonetheless.

Regards, Myo

David

Myo, I'm with David on this: Please! Try it! Try it!

In the interest of science: Please! Try it! Try it!

And, Roger, can I persuade you to co-operate by removing the upper
price limit on ALL Myo's Questions?

I'm sure that everyone (including all those thoroughly deserving
Researchers) would love to see Uclue's first $64,000 Question!

I am already savouring the back stabbing and low-down tricks employed
by those resourceful Researchers as they stay up for as long as it
takes to jostle for the opportunity to lock Myo's question.

And, please, can I claim an Exclusive - as I am sure that the race
will become a much needed media event that will probably lift the
world out of recession?

I also foresee a Broadway Musical with Dick van Dyke as Myo;
Bernadette Peters as Pinkfreud; Barry Humphreys as The Sinister
Adminbot and an all-star supporting cast.

This is it: THE BIG ONE!

"Myo, I'm with David on this: Please! Try it! Try it! "

I can see right where this would lead: Probo and friends would get
themselves a couple of new user names and load the site with juicily
titled questions, all cleverly worded to suggest that the actual
question is interesting - but much easier to answer than the title
suggests,. and ....

Actually, as I understood it, I wouldn't get to see the original
question, nut a problem with most questions, but ...

I take the whole thing back, in any form it would undermine the
integrity of Uclue.

Pity about the musical, but I didn't like the suggestions for the lead
roles anyway.

Cin Cin (you should see and hear how well brought up Anton is, when
it comes to toasts), Myo

How would you know that the answer you get is the same as the one that
was given to the private question? I can see the scope for some behind-
the-scenes mirth here...

Probo might be that devious - all his interests in such things (what
about an exposé of fraudulent company accountants?) - but my
respected Researchers ...?

Never! OR?

Ahhh, if I only really had the special software that Probo keeps
mentioning.
