in reply to (Guildenstern) Rex4: But I'm not like that at all!
in thread Method calling question...

Surprisingly enough, I do. I have seen the range of answers. I have added to conversations where I saw appropriate. I have not added in general to merlyn's terse comments because quite often the area is one I am not familiar with.
So there's an interesting possible explanation that popped into my head.

Perhaps you just get frustrated because I don't say enough when it's something you're not familiar with.

Perhaps you object to the way I answer only one fact in the right direction when I think it'll be the fact that helps the original poster along.

That would explain your upset. You want me to provide the complete bridge, not just point the way to the building materials.
