  I couldn't agree more.  I find it difficult to understand how you can
submit code for others to use, yet don't understand the concept of passing
parameters.  I believe there's a newbie list out there for those who have
no programming experience or who are just too lazy to think their problems
out with logic.  I suggest you submit your code requests there and
restrict your use of this list to queries of a developmental or advanced
implementional nature.
