Gee.... I wonder.... if I don't get the section... and I can't understand the = 
not standard = fony netics... then
is it in my best interest to NIL the Q? And since I am the one that is 
responsible, not only for the content of what I am
qsling for but also the integrity of my log.... then the issue becomes not only 
my responsibility to copy correctly but also 
the sending op is charged with sending so I can understand it. The downside.. 
very simply put is NIL. And the upside 
very simply put, is learning how to exchange information in an efficient and 
orderly manner, with the least amount of time
spent to get the job done. 
There are thousands of factors/excuses for not doing the job.... but NIL ends 
that discussion rather effectively. Don't do it 
right... don't get in log. No problem.... Ultimately... it is a team effort... 
and if one member of the team doesn't know how to 
play... then the team isn't as good as possible. So... precontest is the time 
to learn and study??????
