If you need to write nasty posts, then you've come to the wrong place. This is a moderated forum: we don't tolerate such behavior and will act accordingly if it comes up again.
Yea, as long as I'm not blunt, I can write condescending posts, or ignore clear points made by others. I know how it works..
It's all the same to me

If you don't want to learn how use MX and read our nice user manual, are you seriously expecting our unpaid volunteers to be happy about spoon-feeding you answer after answer, without even any thanks so far-- just nasty replies?

Seriously?

Are you going to demand to see our manager next?

You can get a full refund for MX on your way back to Ubuntu, for all I care, then.

Jumpin' Jehosophat!

I've said several times I'm happy to learn, as long as it's gui. And I've also expressed gratitude and willinginess in this area.
So maybe it's best to keep your slurs to yourself.
Also I thought holy profanity was not welcome in here.
It's ok if you do it I suppose.

I guess you consider Yosemite Sam's use of the phrase a curse and a blasphemy? Are you going to agitate to have his cartoons banned?

How do you know which Jehoshophat I'm referring to in the Bible, too, since there are at least a couple of them?

I guess such pointless and antagonistic replies are fine if they come from a seasoned member like you

Alt-F1
Ctrl-F
Skype
