Stop multiposting. I already helped you with your problem, yet you
keep posting the same question in other newsgroups. It is very
insulting. Read http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1855.html before posting
You are multiposting, which means you post a separate message to each
newsgroup. There is no way for someone trying to answer your question,
to see if it has already been answered by someone else. Thus, you ask
for my time, you ask me to put in effort to answer your question, but
it might be all for nothing because you might already have your
answer. That is concidered insulting.
Futhermore, someone might have the same question as you do. There is
no way for that person to find the answer, if it were to be posted in
one of the other groups you posted to.
Next time, post your question to one newsgroup. If you can't get a
decent answer in a day or two, try the next one. If you really,
really, really want to post to multiple newsgroups, crosspost to them.
Crossposting means putting all groups you want to post to on a single
line - that way everybody can see to which groups the post went. Do
not post to more than four newsgroups - that's never good. I won't
even see your post if you do that. Also, always set up a
'Followup-To:' header, to make sure all replies go to the same
newsgroup. If you don't know how to do that, post to a single group
