I agree with Spriteman and Gavin. However, I think that Mr Naulls come across as a bit of a twat and on this occasion has succeeded in ridiculing nobody but himself.

Peter, a wise man once said to me "There's no shame in not knowing, only in not wanting to know". I am in no doubt you have vast technical knowledge but you seem to forget that most of the rest of the population isn't so well informed about particular technical matters. If you asked some niave questions of a knowledgable person about a topic they were expert on, in the search for some knowledge, would you expect to be publically ridiculed too?

You see, this is all part of the attitude which puts people off RISC OS. You ask questions int he PC community, and yes you get the odd prat, but you geta lot of very helpful answers too. What you do NOT find is the editors of supposedly well-respected websites taking the p*** out of the few people who still have an interest. Trolls on a newsgroup is one thing and largely ignorable, but such behaviour on a portal such as Drobe brings down the reputation of the whole platform, IMHO.

Hardly inspires me to click on the "Donate" button at the top of the page...
