Under slightly different circumstances, I'd agree with you wholeheartedly. But when I read a post that starts:
in reply to Re^2: Where is the input box?
in thread Where is the input box?
Why can't I find the input box to submit a post on the Monastery Gates page?
Or, is it your policy to make it hard to post?
my immediate response is to think "The problem may not be with this site". An analogous situation is reading a post that says "There's a bug in Perl; it won't do what I want it to".
Could I have posted in a more civil fashion? You bet. Was my sentiment wrong? I'm not so certain.
