I read the web page and will read it again this weekend.

At that time I will give you some feedback.  Especially looking
forward to reading about macros which was not in the page
I checked.  I sincerely believe the newbies need some real help
in that area.   They do not recognize the true value of some
well thought out macros.

As far as the etiquette..... I tend to agree with Jon.   This is a game
where you CYA or loose it.   Better to play well, play safe, play RTS
than depend on your competition to abide by a set of arbitrary rules.

Looking forward to rereading the page.
