Thank you for your civil suggestions. I wish I could have a pint with some
of y'all, especially those who are repelled by my posts, to gain a deeper
understanding than is apparently possible via email alone. I would,
however, benefit from folks citing examples of my most egregious questions
and "off-beat statements."

I agree that it is best to ask one question at a time, and I will endeavor
to reform in this regard.

Normally I ignore emotionally-charged complaints that are general in
nature, simply because the complainants don't supply any specifics for me
to hang my hat on. It is not unusual for some to feel that their ox is
being gored by a comment or opinion, but without their citing/quoting the
specific statement(s) gave offence, I have nothing to hang my hat on. I do
not discourage controversy, but do not shy from it.

I do not wish to distract this forum from its intended purpose (this is not
about any one person), so I only comment (rarely, I hope) when I believe I
have something useful and relevant to contribute. Mostly, I'm interested in
learning, even though I'm rocketing to the 80-mark. I trust that other
professionals share that objective. To me, that means asking more questions
than opining from on high.

Best regards,
Wayne

Hi Wayne, just to clarify my post below, plenty of folks subscribe and
just ask a few questions, or just quietly read, and that's great.

It's when, as a top-poster for several months in a row, with most postings
being a series of multiple questions and (if you don't mind me politely
saying) somewhat off-beat statements, that it is perhaps unsurprising
you're getting some curt, perhaps exasperated, responses.

Just hoping to explain from aside, not discourage, - yours with best
wishes - really. Simon

Hi Wayne

It's a great forum with a lot of sharing of info, questions, discussion
(rarely heated) and usually more answers than questions.

But, with the greatest respect for your curiosity / study / research,
perhaps you could study the postings from the others who accompany you on
the monthly 'leader board' and see how they compare to your postings - on a
scale of give vs take? That might help you understand some of the responses
you are getting, when 500 + people are getting each of your posts in their
email.

Perhaps a period of calm tuning in to the forum's nuances might help?

Best wishes.
Simon
