I love to help spread knowledge about volleyball to those who are
but I do get cranky when I get
asked questions that smell like verbatim homework questions.
Actual examples I've received include: "Explain three ways to
win a rally." and "Would you tell me 7 main differences
and 7 main similarities between beach- volleyball and indoor court
volleyball?" "We are doing a project on the
olympics and my group has the sport volleyball can you send me the
volleyball timeline okay my time is up in class i got to go... A.S.A.P." and
most recently I had some lazy punk ask me to convert 8mx16m into feet
and inches for him! At least think about the questions
before sending them to me, and I'll cheerfully assist. Otherwise,
you may end up mentioned here. 8-)
