I need to remind you all to be helpful and please leave off the vulgarities and rudeness.
I'd also like to remind you that you were all once Newbies, and that we encourage new members here on CC. What you may consider a "silly question", the newbie may be in the dark about. Please exercise a bit of patience and guidance, instead of judgement.
There is SO much I want to say to this comment but I know it will just fall on deaf ears
Yes, I was a 'newbie' once - 30 odd years ago and I managed to learn what I did .... not through the internet but through a group of very kind ladies and gents that passed on what they knew. It might SURPRISE you that they DIDN"T sugar-coat their advice back then - if I was to 'learn' from them it was a a 'boots and all' lesson - yes they made me do the same thing - over and over again - until I perfected it. They didn't give me step by step pictorials nor priced my cakes for me - they told me the process to follow and told me to go home and do it..... I STILL subscribe to this method of learning as being the most effective - the have a go yourself method!
HOW is what has transpired on this thread ANY different - the advice people are giving is not 'less caring' - I can't see ANYWHERE where people called it a 'silly question'. There was LOTS of GUIDANCE offered and the only patience lost was was mine and it was NOT directed at the 'newbie' - as for your reference to 'vulgarities and rudeness' - I can only see where you have EDITED my post and removed my reference to a 'was*e remov*l syst*m" with an emoticon of dropping your dacks - sorry if THIS is what you have deemed VULGAR.... gosh I have seen so much worse on here and never given it another thought - it was meant in FUN !
I think 'judgement' here is aimed at the very people that were trying to offer HELP - it certainly makes one question WHY they even bother!
