Not much for internet drama, but since I stumbled upon this forum it quickly became one of my new favorites. My experience has been that the folks here have been fantastic and given a bunch of great advice, valuable insight and been friendly above and beyond.
I find my reception at any forum depends quite a bit on my attitudes and the spirit in which I visit. My quick take is that this current post is pretty telling on what exactly your attitude was. This case seems to be PEBKAC as we like to say in the computer field... Problem exists between keyboard and chair.
