Yes. And what is your problem with that? Noone answered, so live with it.

What the hell? There is no indication that people can't read your 
messages. You have gotten plenty of answers in the past. In addition, 
you can yourself also see that your messages reached the list.
If you do not get an answer, it is because people either do not have an 
answer, or else do not want to answer.

Trying to offend them by being sarcastic will most likely not get you 
any more answers. However, it do show, to others reading, that you are 
pretty much expecting and demanding that people respond to your posts. 
Which is a rather child-like behavior. We are not here to satisfy your

Who knows how much time they have left. Does that make it ok to offend 
anyone else who is not responding to your every demand?
I think not. You are free to disagree, but in that case I will 
definitely ignore you.

I do have a killfile. If people start offending me, or being generally 
obnoxious, I am obviously not going to change them, nor do I care enough 
to actually waste my time doing that. My time is precious enough to me 
as it is.
So the obvious solution is to just ignore them from that point on. They 
can go on ranting about how unfair people are to them, and I do not have 
to read it.
