, it may appear that way, however, I can occasionally become very frusrated. As a "Type A" running this help desk, I sometimes have to take a breath and count to 10, or maybe 100, then monitor my responses very closely. Make no mistake; in 1600+ posts over the past 14 months, I've been properly dressed down by another Forum member for becoming outwardly irritated with a n00b, which I considered to be a wakeup call, and thanked him for bringing it to my attention.
I'm here to help, so I don't get up in the morning to be short with anyone, but I do have limited patience for "users" that don't want to read, who instead just want to be spoon-fed quick answers, and have no intention of attempting to comprehend the information. I think that it's presumptuous and intrusive to post repetitive questions which Forum member's have to take time to answer, when the information has already been made readily available, and simply requires a little research to acquire.
Prompting others to perform one's research is just plain lazy, which lends perspective to the term "user", and should result in the revocation of one's computer power cord privileges. I'm typically quite happy to help others work a problem through to a successful conclusion, but I don't appreciate anyone abusing my time by "using" me as their own personal oracle.
