I think that in the beginning everyone was being very informative, no one was stabbing anyone. Then it all got rowdy when Alex refused to take anyone's advice, anyways i think that there's no further need to debate on this.
It's good to see you apologize Alex. Please understand that those people including myself weren't trying to knock you down, the intent was to make you aware of the situation and to prevent yourself and the hobby from getting hurt. Just try to be a little more open minded next time you ask for help,
And while i'm at this, i would like to apologize as well. I know i got a little carried away, i'm sorry if i offended you or anyone else.
I say we just forget about all this.
