Wow, I wish I had as much time to waste complaining about pointless
issues as you guys. Then I'd actually have time to work on my
LOL! Good one!
Considering that *you*'re the one that wasted your time writing the original
*complaint* that I replied to, why *don't* you in fact just work on your hobbies
instead of wasting even more of your valuable time with rude and pointless
notes like that one and blaming me/us for it?
What *is* it about the suggestion that a little politeness and appreciation might
be a good idea when asking for help that bothers you enough to take the time
I don't care if the OP is offended and leaves the list, or if his attitude causes
some folks to make a mental note to not lift a finger to help him next time;
that's his choice.
The *point* is that enough criticism and lack of appreciation etc. might prompt
folks like Dave to leave the list or stop sharing his contributions with us; that
concerns me, even if OP doesn't care now that his problem has been solved.
I know that Dave at least has already asked himself a few times why the hell
he bothered, especially with IMD...
