  • Questions

    Once upon a time there used to be a really long list of questions on this forum. Since a number of new members have joined since then, I now add a new, shorter (though still pretty long) list of questions. Those who want to can copy the questions, paste them into a new post and answer them, thereby giving their fellow MWMians a clearer (?) picture of who they are. I didn't come up with the questions. If anyone knows the origin of this list, please let us know. I will answer these questions sometime, but right now I don't have the time, sorry. All this is just for fun, of course.
