I'm so darned slack at the moment... but I promise there's a reason for it! I've been flat out like a lizard drinking. (Ever seen that? It's pretty darned creepy actually.)

But all that's beside the point. See today I'm not having a rant per se... Just imploring people to read posts before offering a solution.
See, yesterday I participated in a long thread in an ongoing conversation. I explained my situation and why I couldn't do something.
I received a suggestion from someone on how to fix it. Except, if they'd read my initial message, they would understand it's not a problem from my side. It's an incompatibility issue I have no control over.
I receive another piece of advice. This time someone else told the poster that the problem wasn't from my side.
This morning yet another piece of advice that totally ignores what I said. Now, I have to admit, I'm getting frustrated and terse and more than a little stroppy.
If there's one thing that gets up my nose is helpful advice from people who don't understand the problem... not because I didn't explain it, but because they didn't read the post properly.
For the love of little apples...
