What Maria Valeska said.
A caveat against wrong word usage. You cannot use the word doubt to ask a question. You can always ask a question, but in no way can you ask a "doubt." You can even ask forum regulars to "clear up a point (of confusion)," and never doubt, even for a moment, that they will fail to do it. You may even call the whole thing into question. But not call it into "doubt."
Rather than ask, "I have a doubt," say something like "I have a question," "This question has bothered me for years" <proceed to describe what possibly 'disturbs' or 'mars' your understanding of it>, "I could never fathom the difference between X and Y, but I hope the forum regulars will" I mean, you can always resort to creativity in asking what questions you want asked and answered.
Do please correct me if I make mistakes. No guarantee I will ever produce a text 100% accurate and get away with it with a smile on.
