But what then when people make stupid parse errors and start talking in
all caps complaining that their code doesn't work and demand help?  We'll
flame them just the same.  So its either help them, or get large threads
of flames over and over.  Sure it is much better to learn to code yourself
and not ask simple questions, but listwise It might be just easier to
guide people on the right track (and actually have something to do with
circle) than just flame them all the time.
