Yes, you need help, and in more ways then you imagine.
What you've done is way outta line with respect to the LQ AUP. Not a double, triple but a QUAD post.

Why is this bad?
1. You're promoting your question w/o regards to resources. Yes, you don't have to pay for it, but that doesn't mean you should get greedy.
2. You're wasting people's time and energy because people are bound to react to one of the duplicates, thus duplicating the effort to help you.
3. By promoting your question several times, you get a bigger chance yours get's answered. Which means you show no respect to your fellow LQ members who are decent enough and show enough good netiquette to post their question once.
