Re: New Question: backup


No-one forced you to join the mailing list.

At the end of the day, if you want to waste your own time replying to KB questions that no-one will ever see or care about, then that’s up to you. Don’t be surprised if the rest of us think that you are being ridiculous and stubborn for the sake of it. You might as well just not bother replying to questions submitted to KB and then we wouldn't be wasting our time pointing it out.

Just let this chain die and get back to constructive threads on the list. No-one here is agreeing about this and I'm sure we all have more important things to do.
