" Sure buddy ! Here at Hvac-Talk we relish the chance to assist new members in their daily troubleshooting endeavors and by no means use some arbitrary post count scale as a litmus to gauge the technical aptitude of complete strangers. You can count on us for friendly objective input and know that when we attempt to answer your questions it will be with out condescension and impertinence. "
Not to broad brush but after reading through more than a few post and seeing the way new members are treated I realize this forum isn't for me. I thought it might be interesting to chat with like minded individuals on a vocational level but quickly realized that the one ever present truth of online forums hasn't escaped this group of people.
That unfortunately anonymity breeds courage. ( It should be this forums creed )
Ironic that there is nothing courageous about being a dick to someone over the internet.

sorry that i didn't answer fast enough, given that i get paid during the day to repair problems like this and then i come home and do it for free at night. my daughter had a vocal concert tonight and i thought that she might be a touch more important than helping you for free and missing it.Spellin mitsakes bother me.

could the exv be flooding? Had one last summer that appeared to be an exv just stuck open, and this was causing low oil temp trips

After reading through several threads and post I definitely soured on this place. People come here for answers when, most likely, their at their limit. The posters that patronize these people or like to pretend that their time is too valuable do it at the expense of people that are just looking for advice.
Like I said, anonymity breeds courage but sitting behind a keyboard and talking down to people is anything but courageous, It's chicken ****.
Anyway who cares because when it comes down to it it's just a forum. Ill poke around a bit longer maybe. Its an interesting place and I didn't mean to generalize.
Im sure their are helpful people here too.
Also I would appreciate if you DIDN'T offer up any advice on this subject. I never asked you personally for your input. Is the name "Jayguy" in my second post ?

It takes three people to do anything around here. Two do the work, one explains to the crowd of people who showed up when they seen smoke and flames.

You took my post personally so Im guessing you gave some guy a hard time who was just looking for some advice ?
That sounds like a personal problem and I'm sure if you lived next door to me you would be a lot nicer guy in person. I have that effect on people.
I came here thinking someone might have experienced the same issue and also aside from the people that a equate post count on a obscure hvac forum to a status symbol it's a good source of information.
My success doesn't depend on the input of internet technicians who are not even at the job site. I mean you see how ridiculous that is ?
The golden rule should transcend face to face introductions. That's all I was saying.

Most new guys don't get it until they've been here a while. It's OK if they want to blow some steam but it takes two to tango. Blowing off steam is great, we just don't have to join the party so to speak. They are the ones that must be patient.
If he wants to think all we do is sit at a coffee shop and wait on a question to answer then again that's OK. If he stays with us he will learn we take care of business first then come here to relax.

(He)...Me after spending a considerable amount of time poking around threads concerning RTAs in general AFTER I made my initial post noticed a pattern. People for whatever reason having to contend with patronizing snarky comments by what seem to be a hand full of posters.
What did they do to deserve that treatment ? They logged on to a public forum and asked a question.
You guys want to deny that happens be my guest but I dont have much patience for it. Ive worked with a lot of guys in my time who had less experience and or knowledge and always gave them the minumum amount of respect and more just because we shared the same air.
I dont see why a keyboard should change that. Looking back I probably should have kept my mouth shut. Having a big mouth is just one of my many faults. That and being a perennial smart ass.
Jayguy you seem like a nice enough guy whos very knowledgable and I apologize for stirring you up. Looking forward to reading your replies and threads
