I am disappointed that you graded this answer only as "C" The answer given was clear and correct - You are not going to go down to well with other experts if you do this on a regular basis. An answer is worth an A, unless it doesn't resolve your issue

Please can I refer you to the grading guidelines :-

Grading at Experts Exchange is not like school. It's more like the "10-point Must" system in professional boxing; in other words, an answer is worth an A, unless it doesn't resolve your issue. If it requires you to do a little more research, or figure out one more piece of code, then it's worth a B. If you think it's not worth a B, the custom is to offer the Experts an opportunity to earn a better grade.

Giving a higher grade has no impact on your Available Points.
