However it might be possible to require it only when it's indeterminate. Regan

Sorry, I'm just used to forums where posting a thread without looking for similar threads that have been posted before is nearly a sin.. It's just that this is not the first time that this has happened to me. How about my module problems thread a few weeks ago? The only people who replied were two guys having a pretty much OT conversation in the thread, and Walter asking me to clarify something, without actually acknowledging the rest of my post. Then, a week or so later, I saw a few threads that talked about very similar things, and they sparked long, serious discussions.
