    To some degree, I am even willing to accept different views. However, as to everything else, there is a limit to it too.

    1. Discriminating helpers based on their supposed intellect and the usefulness of their help is not a very polite gesture. (Never look a gift horse....)
    2. When someone is not very polite, I usually start to feel bad and be mad.
    3. For my help I do not expect any favors, but I do not expect a sour taste left in my mouth either.

    My feelings count rather than the number of thanks.

    Thank you, Bamako3.

    It was totally my fault -- I forgot to thank you for your help, very sorry about that.
