Pardon my ignorance, but why does anne-marie have to post Raymond's reports? Not that I mind, but it seems to me double work. Why can't Raymond post it himself? I know that it is a very trivial question, but it still boggles the mind.

Basically not all the park computers access the internet, but staff can get and send emails via their intranet. So Raymond can send out emails but not access the forums.
