We have a great community

Earlier today, I had to go over to another popular tech forum (more so than ours, I'm afraid) to get some help with a specific issue.

I asked a specific question that was neither immediately obvious, or easy to find (I had been trying, and I'm pretty amazing at finding things online). I was nice and immediately got jumped on by one of those "Why don't you search?" jerks who felt it'd be better to give me a hard time about it than just helping me.

There's a place for that, of course... when things are immediately obvious if you simply open your eyes. But this wasn't that kind of issue.

The guy then, KEPT, being a jerk. And no one else bothered to help, either.

After all that, I really appreciate our community here and how good we are to newcomers.

Give yourselves a hand!

I double duck ditto! May you could post your question here, if you haven't already found the answer. There are so many people here with expertise in areas other than ebooks that maybe one of them can help you.

I was able to figure it out, thankfully. In fighting the urge to go back and call the guy a sanctimonius jackass.

That is so much true!

Seems eBook(-Reader) afficionados are a bunch of very nice people... (I wonder what "our" average profile would be?!)
