How did I comment in "that way?" I simply asked a question. Jamesh interpreting my post as saying "this is clearly a better thing, and you are stupid not to do it," was clearly injecting his personal frustrations. His behavior was unprofessional. My question is in writing. Read it. Nobody deserves to be treated this way, especially a paying customer by a paid employee. Jamesh then makes matters worse by double-down on his personal attacks rather than apologizing. He then blames me for not googling it.jamesh wrote:The references to 'know better' were more of a catch all to everyone who comments in that way, not specifically aimed at yourself, but all those who say "This is clearly a better thing, and you are stupid not to do it" (yes, we get quite a bit of that). Well, the RPF are not stupid, ...
I never claimed or even thought "the RPF are stupid." I am a newbie to both digital photography and Raspberry. I learned of the existence of Raspberry only last month. I just learned yesterday that RPF was a charity.
My view was completely the opposite. I believed there were good reasons for not offering swappable lenses and extension cables. And I believed it was likely that RPF is making prudent decisions. I had no reason to believe otherwise. The Pi appears to be popular. I did not know those reasons and simply asked a question to learn why.
Please provide a link.jamesh wrote:explain the same things over and over again, when a Google search will more than likely have found the answer.
I spent hours searching the internet and the Raspberry forum for answers. I even posted a question about extension cables that went unanswered. These do not sound like questions from a know-it-all.
A better reply to my question would have been to provide a link rather than a personal attack. Or not reply at all. Answering questions "over and over again" is par for the course for this type of support. And I have yet to see where this question was previously asked. jamesh should take responsibility for his unprofessional behavior rather than make excuses and blame others.
