Well I accept your thanks most graciously, but I have to say others have provided the answer.
I merely proved (again) to myself and others, that it is by trying to be a good member and stick your neck out and help others you expose yourself to correction.
When that happens I learn from it.
It can be humbling, but really, if there are any other passive readers and not participators out there, stick your neck out and jump in and provide your answers when you see the opportunity.
You will get things wrong and it might make you feel a bit daft for not knowing something but you will learn a lot, you'll be helping others and you will make more friends.
