" Everyone on XSL-List intends to be polite and should be treated
politely in return."

I'm not so certain about that.  I was pretty upset by a response the
other day.  I kept it to myself though because I ended up getting good
feedback on my problem.  I know it's easy for me to get impatient with
people when they don't understand things that I think they should
understand.  Please don't forget about the rookies like myself.  I'll
stop asking silly questions eventually.

That's a good new-year's resolution!

Folks may be tired or distracted or bothered by other things and be a
snappish as a result. Don't snap back -- that just gets into a flame war
and everyone loses! -- just clarify your note or ask for clarification
their answer, as required. Or let someone else handle the remaining
unresolved questions, or let it rest and come back to it after folks
calmed down.

(I'm not always great at this either -- I know I can be an officious SOB
times -- but I'm trying to learn.)
