Its kinda strange, dont know whether you guys have
observed this.

Nowdays most of the silly questions or beginner level
questions are coming from the ones employed in Mathworks.
I dont know whether I am making a very bold statement.
I mean just go through this enquiries made by some of this
O.P's and if you click on thier name you will see they
have the Mathworks email ID.

Strange!!!
Arent this guys supposed to be helping us, instead of they
needing our help

Please see these links

There are many more too

P.N: I am not trying to offend anyone anyhow. Its just my
observation.

That doesn't mean they are Mathworks employee. You could try
to subscript with the same kind of Mathworks ID.

They aren't employed by mathworks -- when you sign up on
Matlab Central and do not give a personal email address, the
email address that shows up in postings comes out @mathworks.com

Oh OK! My Bad! Apologies!
But then this is what one would thing initially, if he or
she doesnt know this. And also would be a bad reputation
for Mathworks. I think Mathworks people should be more
careful and give out probably @anonymous.com instead of
@mathworks.com

  You have a good point there, Vihang. I agree with you. MathWorks would do
well to use a different default email address for their Matlab Central newsgroup
users for just that reason - to make it evident that their own employees are not
the ones asking the questions. Only Mathworks' employees should show
@mathworks.com in their email addresses.
