  If you are unwilling to invest in your own education and refuse to pay
  those who know what you might like to learn in any way, why are you so
  certain that people would be willing to do it for free on a newsgroup?

  I am glad you demonstrated your unwillingness to _work_ to learn what you
  seek to understand, too.  Your unwillingness to invest either time or
  money is an important flag to your environment: you are in fact nothing
  more than a street beggar, asking passersby for hand-outs; you are not a
  participant in a forum for and by professional who have _both_ invested
  time and money to learn _and_ spent a lot of their spare time to help
  others become professionals in their fields a little faster and better
  than they would if they had to do it only on their own, without guidance
  or feedback or with unanswered questions or unchallenged assumptions.

  Go beg on some other street!

  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
