So do you and Molly actually use this stuff or do you just Google? – Nathaniel Feb 3 '10 at 5:43
@Nathaniel, I still have this installed but I don't really use it any more: Thunderbird's lightning has essentially replaced it for my needs, but since Thunderbird isn't primarily for this sort of thing, and it isn't exactly 'light', this is my recommendation. – John T Feb 3 '10 at 6:25
@Nathaniel It doesn't matter how a respondent gets the information. Many questioners here don't know how to use Google properly, so I try to put the source of my information into my answers - even sometimes a link to the Google query. – Iain Feb 3 '10 at 10:11
Right. I just got the impression that they did a lot of Google answering, but I also have the impression they're pretty smart and rather widely experienced people. Also, I do think in general that software-rec answers are more credible if the answerer has actually used the software. – Nathaniel Feb 3 '10 at 19:56
