Well, I wasn't going to reply, but your title got me thinking.  I think
_everyone_ is reading _too_much_ into everyone else's posts in this
thread.  No one is "innocent" and I don't think your reaming of Mike was

I also think you fail to realize that Mike _did_ offer at least some
help.  I don't think his attitude was "overbearing," he was just trying
to "draw out" the ultimate question, "WTF is this for?"  The original
poster did not clearly state specifics.

Again, I don't think anyone is "innocent" in this thread.  But I for one
would at least raise an eyebrow when someone starts asking about regex
strings for credit card numbers.  Mike did it in his own way, maybe not
perfect, but not so "overbearing" like you suggest.

Just $0.02 ...
