I'm brand new to this forum. Is this sort of interaction normal here ?

Is giving an explanation with just about every detail wrong perhaps offensive?

No, wrong is about what you write, offensive is about how you write it.

If a poster asks for specific information, and someone totally misinforms that person, I do find that offensive.

Calling nonsense nonsense is just being direct, calling things what they are.

I don't think you (brightcolours) wrote in the friendliest way possible, but I think the level of technical misinformation warranted your response. The only thing you might water-down next time is the "Nonsense" title.  

BTW, pretty decent explanation of entrance pupilwithout saying the words.
