No. Not helpful. Neither is this.

"Helpful" is attempting to find out what the OP is trying to do and suggesting alternatives or workarounds as others have done.

"Helpful" is acknowledging that while what they want to accomplish might be technically possible, it's not encouraged, nor will it likely be supported by a lot of hardware/software out there--like others have done.

"Unhelpful" is seeking to end all discussion/participation by issuing terse "can't" or "don't" replies that impart no knowledge.

The latter is what Jon tends to do around here that I'm not going to tolerate.

If you have no constructive advice to help the OP accomplish, or alter their goals please consider not replying at all.
