    It's not that. This is a teaching site, so if you're going to respond to a student's question it's best to provide all the facts.

    That's a staff member you're insulting, and the Webmaster you're upsetting.

    Cas, that's exactly it!

    Also, there's no harm in asking questions, even if you're a staff member. I fail to see why issue has been taken against Ron in this way, especially when he is so well respected amongst our many members. He has prolifically provided students with help when he can.

    Perhaps a little refresher course in our forum rules would be helpful here, which can be found in full in our FAQ.

    Refrain from insult and swearing
    In other words, don't attack people or their characters...
