That "there's never been any proof" crack shows pretty plainly that right off the bat you assumed:

1) I'm a moron.
2) You know more than I do.

Obviously neither is true.
Actually, at the risk of spoiling some holiday cheer, 273 was not being snarky at all - nada, zip - nothing in evidence.

273 did not remotely suggest that you are a moron, suggest any superiority or knowledge above your own nor display any holier-than-thou attitude.

Frankly, from your introduction and in many threads that you have participated in you really do come off as a first class butthead at times. It might just be your personality, we all have them, but we need to respect those of others as well.

From your introduction...

That was not the first *nix board I hung out at. My personal experience leads me to a question: Why does it seem that whenever you join a new *nix board and try to help people, express an opinion or ask a question that some of the "old guard" on the board feel like they need to dump on you? I didn't go to college. Is it some kind of initiation ritual? Did I miss something? Or is it a test of your skin thickness? B/c I can tell you it's rather annoying. When I very first got in to *nix I went through three boards in rapid secession until I figure out that it just seems to be the general culture. But, as a noob it almost put me off *nix. Sometimes I wonder how many non-hardcases we, as a community, lose b/c of it?
If you always seem to get this reaction, you might look at the common factor in each of those encounters (hint: use a mirror). It isn't *nix culture. It isn't noob's. It isn't any right of passage. It is simply receiving as you give, reaping what is sown, karma, kismet, vibes, many names for it.

So please consider that you are in reality just one more unique individual participating in a forum with many other unique individuals. You and everyone else, have something to contribute and many things to learn. Try to be a bit less defensive, and offensive, take off the butthead mask and enjoy the respect that will come your way from your peers.

Respect is a busy, multi-way intersection, please drive courteously.
