    I get so annoyed when members of skills Universe ask for help and or assistance, for draft documents to be used, for details of training and other skills related information and then fail to have the courtesy to acknowledge receipt, to say thank you and worse still make use for alternate purposes what is sent to them. surely when we ask for help we should at least say "thank you"
