That sounds like that guy that went to the doctor: "Doctor, whenever I drink coffee my right eye hurts"
Dr: "Well, here's a cup, please show me"
Patient: mixes in some milk and sugar, drinks, then cries: "aaauw"
Dr: "Well, it would probably help if you took the spoon out of your cup before drinking..."

A newly registered user who asks a pretty generic and imprecise question in his/her first post… that might be my paranoia kicking in, but that raises a flag in my mind saying "most likely a spammer that will edit his/her post later to add links or something".

Hoping I'm wrong though… then how about you describe what seems to be the issue, please ?_?

I was afraid of the same, ConstanceJill, so I "googled" this French woman before I posted my answer. She is using the name alice131 in other fora/forums as well, and she is okay.

I'm with ConstanceJill on this one. Looks like a spammer. Registered, posted this thread for no apparent reason, then left the site. All within 5 minutes. And hasn't been back here since.

I "googled" this French woman before I posted my answer. She is using the name alice131 in other fora/forums as well, and she is okay.

How do you know she is French? And how do you know that the alice131 you found on other forums is the same person and not just a generic spammer username?

I agree with Deozaan.

"some issue" ! The question itself raises eyebrows. The poster is not expecting any solution but wants us to believe it is a normal post.
