On being polite

On being polite, an unauthorized Cnet forum primer # A . . . . . Remember when your mother taught you to always say: ''please'' and ''thank you''? Never has this strategy paid off more, than when you are trying to get helpful advice. Saying ''please'' and ''thank you'' (or its equivelent) is the key ingredient to a very successful cycle of communication. Without these, you might go wandering off willy nilly into the void, unaware that all had been successfully completed. Give the moderator a feedback too. He may be able to draw on that to help others such as you. This advice can actually help in all other situations in life too. You are not the ''Master''. ''They'' are not the ''slave''. Try it, it will make you feel all warm and fuzzy.

Russ, Sorry I am so late posting for Mother's Day. I had a wedding to attend in New Jersey this past Mother's Day weekend.

Happy Mother's Day to you mother also.
Please and thank you always work.
Now I feel warm and fuzzy all over.

What about Father's Day coming up in June? Any advise from good old Dad? :

As a father, once they are all grown you can only advise, not require. If they won't listen to a reasonable suggestion, they would probably not be able to implement it anyhow. Sorry to be so negative. But you did ask.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
