One of the reasons people post questions here is to learn something relevant to their daily work in the trade.
Some folks here post to share knowledge and information.
Some post here because they have a question that simply puzzels them and they would like some input. Even though they wont necessarily use that knowledge the next day on the job.
Some times I just make up threads asking questions to spark some discussion.
Kind of like what DiceMan does, only I dont care what color panties y'all wear nor what your doing next weekend!
But when a guy has a question and some schmuck comes along with the gahl to post a response saying; "dont you know HOW to DO THAT???"
"Maybe you need to get a different job."
Thankfully only a very small percent of the members here would ever post such a reply to an honest question.
There's been threads I have begun here which never got the responces I had hoped for.
Some ended up being zero.
Some got just what was needed, a few which were explicit. Which served me just fine.
But a couple ended up with smart alleck replies and no good answers to work with.
Its not the norm so thats okay.
But when a guy comes here and posts a good question ... what makes another guy want to show how poor his people skills are by replying with put downs?
makes ya wonder who raised these types .... they sure do not impress me.
