A lot of the value of this blog comes from the discussion in the comments, and so it is important that all comments be related to the original post. While I appreciate anyone who takes the time to leave a comment, if a comment is not related to the original post, I won't reply and may delete the comment.

Do not hijack a post to an entirely different question. Please see if your question has been addressed by other posts. If not, you can submit it at

I try to address the questions and topics suggested there through this blog and my weekly tips emails.

I'm sorry, but I cannot reply by email to questions that are highly specific to your team. If your question or topic is one that I think is of general interest to others here, I will do my best to address it in a blog or weekly tip.
