Asking for help effectively

Manish,

You made it extremely difficult for anyone to respond intelligently to your
message. It has at least the following problems:

1. The subject isn't related to the problem you are trying to solve.
Many people won't go beyond that.

2. You quoted an entire python-list digest. Which digest message were
you responding to? If I was going to try and help directly with the
problem you are having (instead of trying to get you to ask for help
more effectively), I'd have to read the entire digest and try to
figure out which messages are pertinent.

3. You top-posted, and worse, because of #2, your comment is nowhere near
the actual message text you were responding to, making it that much
more difficult to identify your problem.
