I've been around this mailing list for a long time. I'd guess 12  
years, at the very least. It's not often that we get postings from  
anybody as utterly rude and unprofessional as this. Had this been a  
commercial technical support encounter, this would be the point at  
which I would have hung up.

There is never any excuse to be this rude, particularly in a public  
forum, where it is archived forever.

You posted a question, posted a solution that had nothing whatever to  
do with your question, and then posted this diatribe, which had  
nothing to do with either one, and then have the audacity to claim  
that we do what we do in order to get your approval.

One hopes that at some point you have the grace to look back on this  
exchange and be embarrassed at your behavior.
