forum, reaching out to so many who share the same interest?

The levels of discussion are equally hard for me to 'get'. Some are
meant for the likes of 'us', and some simply are not. The technical
language of a speciality makes it pretty arcane to us 'lesser
educates', and properly so!!

I absolutely qualify to be heaped up into the same categorical pile in
which you describe yourself, and from the sounds of responses to your
post, there be a lot of 'us'.

'Tis a tad intimidating, eh? I just try to leave my ego at the door,
stick to the truth as best as I am given it, and never be afraid of
being wrong and looking bad.

I hope you post in confidence.
