No, it's not rude. Don't be one of those sensitive types who are insulted or hurt because they are being ignored or neglected.
Think about it this way...if this was a Q & A forum, no one who puts a lot of time into posting theories, methods, thoughts, w/o's
or suggestions would get anything done. Look at the top posters..look at their work. Stopping to address something that can
easily be looked up in SEARCH is a waste of time for most. They come here and do their thing and that's that. YOU have to do
the legwork and discover how what they post can work for you.
I'll answer pm's or questions IF I see them or get to them....but sometimes you just can't do it, it's not physically possible without
losing focus. Do you see how much Blackapple does in a day? I think when he gets that train running, it doesn't stop...he can't do
station stops or holdovers - delay the schedule and everything gets derailed.
Do this...ask and hope. If you don't get an answer, don't hold a grudge.....do some work yourself and look back on the person being
questioned - their previous posts or search, chances are you will find what you're looking for sooner than you'll get an answer
directly from them.
Don't burn your bridges...it is what it is..if you don't get what you want, move on or better yet find the answer.
The trouble with asking such questions is you appear to be pushy, petty and easily offended. Just realize that mainly, this isn't
the place for a good one on one...it's a post and assist, it's a hobby for some and a passion for others.
Some people want the solution handed to them w/o doing the work...if you are one of those, good luck being recognized at all.
You'll know rude when you see it....not being answered is far from rude.
Good luck and good winnings!
