    Hi!
    It` a very good idea to which I fully subscribe.
    I had a very unpleasant surprise when a newbie contacted me on e-mail several times asking for help. It was something related to other problems [transfer of money - etc, etc.] which had nothing to do with this site dedicated to those who want to improve their knowledge of English. I told her I could not be of any help -it was something illegal and I have never had any problems with legal authorities in my country. Finally , she understood but not before warning her about what I was going to do if she would insist on that. I hope you understand what I have been trying to tell you.

    Otherwise, everything is ok and I have always enjoyed being here with you.

    If I have any ideas I will surely share to you.

    All the best,

    If you do have any problems like that, feel free to let us know so we can stop them.

    Thanks for the comments

    Thank you very much for your help, tdol. I hope I can manage but, if it happens again , I`ll surely ask you for help. The problem is that some newbies do not register themselves on the forum . I`ll be more careful about that in the future.
    Anyway, thanks again.

    As far as I am concerned I find this site of great help. It`s wonderful ! I like it very much because every time I post a question ,the replies come very quickly and , moreover, the answers are posted by professionals who know what they talk about and have a very good knowledge of English language.

    Although I admit I have been searching the web for some other ESL forums, I have not found another [one] like this one, yet

    You have all the reasons to be proud of your work.

    Congratulations!

    Thanks for that. I'll correct where necessary, but you don't make many mistakes at all.

    Re: Help with the forum

    Yes,the lady asked me ,too.She wanted me to help her transfere a larg amount of money.but I didn't.I said her it was not intelectual...
    Maybe she was lokking for someone she could trust.And who is more reliable than a teacher?But one can not trust everybody to do9 whatever she wants !

    But sometimes you can't find sb. in the forum,you can mail him/her and he/she notices and contacts you.this is a good property,isn't it?
