I thought the idea of a forum was to come here and hear from others, add input and your own experiences, debate, discuss, and expand one's knowledge, and even have an enjoyment factor thrown in.
I did not think it came with the demands of one person telling what one should or should not do, and even defining what everyone's definition of 'learning" should be. Sometimes learning is exactly that.....repeating others mistakes. There is more to learn than the final outcome, and perhaps something can be learned along the path of doing it for yourself, even if the final result is the same.
It does not come with telling another they are an idiot, in some round about manner, while rationalizing it as a language barrier.
It does not come with anything beyond offering advice and understanding each and every member has the choice to do what they want. If I had the freedom to call someone an idiot everytime they did something that I had previously done, while demanding they listen to me as I know best and better than them, I would think some might quit listening. ;)
Just trying to help. Here is my hand.....smack away!
I'm just one ignorant American trying to help another ignorant American....or so it seems.
