    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Hello, Sinchai.

    (1) Perhaps this dialogue may help:

    Tom: I post questions, but sometimes no one answers. Why?

    Sue: Well, for one thing, you ask too many questions in one post.

    Tom: Really?

    Sue. Yes. And for another thing, you never thank the people who

    took the time and effort to answer you.

    Tom: Thank you for telling me. I shall try to improve.

    ***** Thank you *****

    Thanks in advance.
    "for one thing" = "one example is....." or "one reason is..."
