Right! The original post is there for anyone to read, but then they have
to restate it in their own words, just so they can "contribute". For 
example,
one of the replies went:

    "So the developers figure that that they should 'get with the times'
    and start using a relational db - problem is, they don't have a f'ing
    clue as to how to use it."

But that was EXACTLY the point of the original post.
