  30. I believe banning the original poster is a little harsh, dontcha think?
    The poster wanted people to check their answers. If someone puts 100% correct answers for the test, that's THEIR problem. You can ban them, but the poster just wanted to know if their answers were right, and why they weren't. They clearly said "help."
