Perhaps it would be a good idea to look closer at the rules a bit ...

😳 Did not know there were rules about that. I guess I have effectively disqualified myself from winning this time -.-

Thanks for the input.

It's in bold text in the topic.

Not at all. You just need to think up a question for the author and post it in its own topic. Surely if you are interested enough in the subject to want a copy, you can think of some questions to ask?
