I have recently uploaded my Gedcom onto the FTJP and have had several
emails phrased more or less as follows:

I would appreciate your reply concerning Moishele Apfelstrudel

Is this the way we ask one another for assistance? No signature, no
details, no thanks in advance for your help. No "I'll be pleased to
reciprocate".<

I am happy to hear >from Menno NYKERK about this question .
Very often, I receive this kind of questions, and sometimes even not so
polite:
"Send all your WEILs...."
This kind of questions don't not come only >from FTJP readers,
but >from quite everywhere in USA, France,..... =

Once, I was so shoked that I answered :
"you would not have asked this way even to the post office
or any shop when you go and pay for something... "

There are some other chapters to write about some questions.
for instance, people who are asking to send by e-mail articles
of the reviews without any subscription to it =

Do they ask this to other editors ?

I don't speak of people who forget to thank for information...

But we also have marvellous and helpful correspondants.....
