On the whole I have stopped posting to this group since there are a 
number of people who are obviously on pedestals above us lowly minions. 
Not so long back after starting a thread I was shot down in an 
unforgivably harsh manner by people who made assumptions about me based 
on absolutely no evidence and proceeded to trample all over my opinion 
and my self esteem.

I have said it before and I'll say it again, not everyone is an expert, 
not everyone understands things that are obvious to you. Be careful how 
you respond as we are supposed to be wanting to encourage mass adoption 
and as many new users as possible. Insulting them, depressing them, 
making them feel small, they will only leave.
