It was thoughtful for the subject, but it ignored the questions I had
raised.  Kindof like if you say "Who won the last football game?" and the
person gives you a Wikipedia entry for football.  On topic, relevant, but 
doesn't answer your question a single bit :-(

Yes, but the matter as described is inaccurate or misleading.  Just because
it's *basic* doesn't mean that wrong answers should be given there.

First I need to be certain of what I'm talking about.  Which is why I ask
questions when two different pages disagree on what a tag does.
