WTH?  I count thirteen perfectly valid replies.  Only two replies to you
*original* post were even remotely insulting.  I don't get you.

I was going to label you a troll myself, seeing as to how many groups you
crossposted to, but the usual trolls here post only to
comp.os.linux.advocacy,, and alt.os.linux...  Still,
you included microsoft.public.dotnet.general, which I see absolutely no
reason for its inclusion, and gnu.misc.discuss, which is probably the
best medium for this topic (although having never visited there, I
wouldn't know).  

Someone else mentioned valid reasons why he considers you a troll.

If you're *not*, and I suspect you *are*, then kindly do some research on
posting and look in particular for files on "nettiquette", specifically
with regards to posting, crossposting, and asking "smart questions"
(admittedly, I myself fail these sometimes, and it would be fitting when
I do for people to call me on it).

Frankly, I'm done with this thread anyway.  Take care.
