in thread A question about method return values and error checking

Presuming strangers owe you their time is among the most rude things one can do. If you don't like the free and open code provided, don't use it. If you don't like my advice, you don't have to follow it.

Now you're not just complaining about the free and open code. Now you're complaining that I pointed out in my thorough review of your situation that you were complaining about the free and open code.

So far as I can tell from reading the thread, I've put more time into understanding and fixing your problem than you have. I'm pretty certain the group as a whole has spent more person-hours on this than you have. Frankly, I think that's rude of you.

Nothing requires me to help you at all. Neither requires the other members here to help, either. You're ranting about a stranger to strangers and expecting them not only to help you for free, but apparently to agree with you as well. Here's the thing: when you're wrong (and I do think you're wrong) agreeing with you doesn't help. Disagreeing with you isn't an attempt to be rude. It's an attempt to make your situation better in the long run even if it's a little uncomfortable for you now.

Then after all the free time people here have put into trying to help you with your complaint about the free code you're using to make your living, you make an entire new response to tell me you don't like the tone you read into my advice? Which one of us exactly is being rude?
