No, I just don't get it.  I don't get why most of the world can do things that 
you say 'doesn't work'.  I don't see anything in what I wrote that could be 
considered 'condescending diatribe', so I'll ignore the rest of what you 

When I write without saying where the information came from it's because it is 
my experience.  In other words, 'it works for me'.  If I reply from hearsay, I 
say so.
