Cross-talk in these forums reminds me of a fable.
A boy was out playing by the river and saw a snake trapped in a fishing net.
"Please, somebody help me!" the snake begged. "I'm drowning!"
"I don't know," the boy said. "Snakes are dangerous."
"But I'm a good snake," the reptile replied.
"I don't know about that," the boy hesitated. "My brother says snakes are poisonous."
"I'm a nice snake," the snake said. "I've never bitten anyone before!"
"Oh?" the boy said. "Well, I suppose that is very nice of you."
"I promise not to bite you if you'll help me," the snake said, tears in its beady eyes.
So the boy agreed to help the snake. But as soon as the snake was free from the net, it bit the boy on the ankle!
"Ouch!" the boy cried. "You said you were nice! You lied to me!"
"Don't blame me," the snake said coolly. "You knew I was a snake the moment you laid eyes on me."
