You then became indignant when one of the "pelted" people who freely offered you advice, corrected you and said that you had misconstrued their advice. You claimed their post was out of line.
I referred to people offering up advice and solutions that may not be correct and observed that research indicated to me that some of those internet experts that seem to be taking over RTF don't have a stellar performance record on EE. You for example have nearly 10,000 posts and appear to have somewhat of a protected status on RTF. Those factors can tend to make others reticent to call you out. That in turn can give new trainers a feeling of confidence in your viewpoints; particularly when they go unchallenged
Since offering up your "solutions" it appears as if you have not been able to pass any of the intermediate level test you have entered. From what you posted on other social media outlets it appears as if you barely even made it to the "bucket" at your tests. That makes me suspect that your "SOLUTION" may not have been found. If that is the case I pointed out that I believe those who use and accept RTF as a training resource may not have been well served by the peanutty attitude that is being encouraged here. I feel that in the freer wheeling RTF of old that some of the more experienced who no longer post due to disinterest, not liking the new culture, or being banned may have felt more comfortable about calling you out and having a freer dialogue to give opposing viewpoints for the lesser experienced to draw from
You have let the cat out of the bag that you are one of the ones I referred to as Muddling. I don't mean to offend your sensibilities. However if it comes to protecting the sensibilities of thin skinned posters or protecting the newer trainers who use RTF from getting unopposed bad advice, I would think the forum would be better served to get the whole unvarnished truth.
