People will say what people will say, Lady Garner.
In any group of people, you are going to have those who think that they don't need to follow the rules, those who follow them without understanding why, and those who are grateful for what the rules teach them.
Occasionally, one or two of the first group becomes a member of the third.
I don't let the foolishness of the first group bother me.
I learn what I can, I ask questions that I think will glean the information I badly need when I need it, and I offer information when I think it will teach something.
Of all the lessons that one can learn here at DB, the very best is the lesson that it's possible to research and find information that is crucial to beating a collector.
On the other hand, for many that is the most painful lesson, because they are taught, from a young age, that they must let others do their work for them, and, along with that, that others will always be there to do it.
I understand that frustration with arrogant, entitled people. I know, though, that they will be the first to fail, unless they lose the entitledness, and gain the sense of accomplishment that only earning knowledge can give you.
