Although the time you spent to reply is appreciated, your condescending tone is not.

In either case, it is rude to accuse someone who has helped you of making you feel bad, because they didn't phrase their reply in a way that makes you feel warm and fuzzy and smart.

A simple "thank you" goes a long way.

Fair enough, but if you read the thread you'll see that I thanked the original poster multiple times. In the last exchange, I asked a specific question prompted by his own post and rather than answer the question he responded, in essence, that the question wasn't worth asking, something he apparently believes I would have understood if I did not suffer the misconception of the masses; he then told me, in almost (but not quite) these terms, to stop asking questions and just try the settings he offered. It is for these response that I suggested his tone was condescending. I stand by this and would wager that most would read the response in context the same way. (I say, "in context," because the post is not on its own objectionable; the tone is different, though, in the context of the question to which it responded, again, a question that was not only not answered, but derided as not worth asking.) This does not detract from the fact that the poster was nice to have offered his settings in the first place, and as I said, I thanked him for that. And it's not as if I accused him of some terrible crime; all I did was call him on his tone. If he thought my question was stupid, which he apparently did, the better reaction would have been not to respond. Anyway, once again, I do thank him for taking the time.

Wow you inferred a lot from my post. That is fine. I am not mad. You expressed your opinion and I expressed mine.

Let me clear a few things up though. I did answer a different question than you asked on purpose. I felt that my response would guide you in a better direction. I actually struggled with posting that because I knew it didn’t directly answer your question.

However, in the end I still think that my post is accurate and the best advice I know of for that question. I have been wrong before and I will be wrong again. However, I always try to admit when I am wrong and I am always open to a good discussion.

I have thick skin and a lot of patience so criticism doesn’t bother me too much. I will call people out when I think they are wrong and I expect the same from them. Nobody is perfect and we can learn something from everyone.

Sometimes we learn what to do and other times we learn what not to do. I did a little of both with the last few posts.
