my my, we haven't had such a rude newcomer to these forums in quite a while!
you come here asking for help. the very least you can do is say thank you when you've been given it.
you are quite eloquent. i'm sure your reading skills are just as good as your writing skills.
you've been given a link to a page that contains the features of the LG drive. the first post on the topic linked to a pages with the Pioneers features. it takes a little time, yes, but not too much, to read both pages carefully, compare them and find the differing characteristics.

you never said you had trouble comparing the info in the links given. for all we know you didn't know of those links.
rdsatkaycee wrote:Sigh That helps. Sigh, sorry it was "SUCH A HARDSHIP" for you to help someone out.
again, you are rude and ungrateful. it took Ian no more effort to do that work than it would have taken you had you bothered to do it properly and thoroughly.

My point is its pretty snobbish and rude to redirect someone when that someone has already said they have tried, to no avail and need a little more help.
no, he does not have a lot of time on his hands (and he took from what little time he has to help you). actually he has very little. and those 10,000 posts, many of which were for helping others, were accumulated over a long time.
and no, all of Ian's 10,000 posts are not refferals to other links.

That's snobbish and rude. Come down off your p-cav and z-cav pedestals and try helping people out when they have said they have looked and cannot find answers and are coming to you for further help.
no, 95% of these posts are not trivial bantering. when you've read a decent percentage of the posts then you can come and make such claims. i very much doubt you've read 1% of Ian's posts.
as for redirecting to a search, well, that's common practice on bulletin boards. however selfish people like yourself don't value others' time. they want to be given the answers to their questions immediately with no effort of their own - why should they if others will do it for them?
if you think Ian's attitude towards you was snobbish and rude, i can only say that i think your judgement is very poor.
but my personal opinion is that your are rude, selfish, ungrateful, belligerent.
one thing for sure, you'll be getting no help from me in the future.
PS i wanted to resppond before, but restrained myself. but now it's too much.
