And if you do that sort of thing a lot, you'll gain a reputation for
so doing and almost certainly lose any chance of getting an answer.
Be courteous and follow the conventions - ask on one list, see if you
get answers, if not (and ONLY if not), then try somewhere else. At
the very least, announce what you are doing in your multiple posts so
people who might answer can see if it's worth their time to respond.
These lists are free, but our time is donated. Respect that.
