Also, I suspect I know of one of the boards you're referring to. Your responses (and responses to you) have appeared already on the "Best of" list. Some boards are notably incendiary or accustomed to dealing with trolls. You may have been assumed to be a troll, or not. Many of the boards are not known for being delicate with newcomers regardless of intent and interest.

I'm quite sure you're smart enough to figure that out, but I do not want to complain about individuals, so let's just keep that between you and me. I hardly see how I could have been considered a troll when I specifically asked permission to begin posting their, but I guess we all have different perspectives.

No way. I've learned my lesson. I'm not up to the challenge.

Thank you for your advice and kind words.
