What's the use of this post besides citing a 4 years old post of Normand?

It was funny reading Mark's comment urging to upgrade.
(snip)
I do miss Mark's comments. He helped me a lot with my first FreeCAD steps.
I miss his comments too - sometimes he wrote some pretty humorous stuff. He joined the forum not long after I did, and he helped me a quite a bit along the way as well.

If you look closely at Maryfreecad's post, new text was added inside my quote. The following is *not* mine.

I have the same problem. Is there anybody to help please?
As the "IMPORTANT: Please read first before asking for help" announcement at the top states:
Please provide a complete description of your problem
The best way to get quick and efficient help is to not spare any details. What workbench and tools are you using? What steps did you take? What was the result? This will avoid back-and-forth exchanges and save time for everybody.
And please post the STL file you're having problems with, or a link to download it (without registration please).
