Again, I think the largest part is attitude, or at least perceived attitude. I can understand being frustrated. If you're not familiar with how to reset, not aware it is an option, or it is difficult due to some limitation, that can definitely be cause for frustration. I have damage to my right arm, and for a year I had no feeling or use of my arm from below the elbow. It seems that often reset operations are designed to be two handed, so it isn't accidentally done. Yeah, when your right hand is totally dead at your side, that isn't happening. Still, when prompted with a situation like that, where you didn't know how to reset at first, and then had an issue physically doing it, that's where groups like this come in. Any (legal) questions or discussion related to ebooks or ebook readers are allowed and welcomed here.
In regards to the moving the post, well, the flea market section is strictly for posting things to sell, or buying things. The mods will move things if it is off topic. When things get disorganized in a forum, things can go to hell in a hurry.
As far as the spelling and typo issue, we (the MobileRead users) are not asking you to be perfect. We will try to be patient to better understand what you mean to get across. For the most part you write perfectly legible English, it just has a few quirks to it. If there is a time where there is a misunderstanding, please also show patience with us. We aren't wanting to fight, and it is in everyone's best interest to that all parties are able to understand what each of them are trying to get across.
