Congratulations on violating just about every rule of mailing list
etiquette in one post!

To wit, the following practices are deemed to be in poor taste and will
discourage people from replying in a helpful manner:

1. Writing in all caps (WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING AT US?).

2. Using incorrect grammar and spelling (PLZ?).

3. Replying to a digest post with a new subject.

4. Asking a poorly framed question (why do you assume that we know what
"Yahoo Answers" is?).

5. Exaggerating the severity of your situation (is someone holding a gun
to your head while you await the answer?).

6. Demanding immediate assistance.

7. Etc.

Perhaps you could do a bit of research, clearly define your
requirements, and ask a more intelligent question next time?

Thanks,
Chris
