You both strike me as being Linux wizards...though with certain strong
differences in ideology. I think that when one holds valuable knowledge in
a major student region, and touches upon that community often...one does
get drained by all the spoiled people who expect all solutions to be
handed on a silver platter. As a result, many experts get sensitized to
these situations, and are quick to deflect anyone who seems to be
approaching them in such a manner. In some cases, they jump the gun; and I
think Rick did so in your case.

As I said, there may be an ideological clash--albeit minor--between
yourself and Rick. I have great respect for hard-working minds that
acquire the excellent knowledge it takes to be Linux/Unix wizards. Don't
mistake my respect for taking what any expert says as the final truth,
including when it comes from Rick. I have much respect for what he says,
and for what you say, too. And sometimes, people clash, even among wizards
(or especially).
