  Help has to be deserved.  If you receive help and turn around to be a
  jackass towards the person who has helped you, you have been so rude that
  nobody should consider helping you again.  That you are arrogant beyond
  belief, too, and attempt to take the high moral ground by refusing to
  listen to hints to modify your behavior, but say outright that you have
  done nothing wrong, that people who perceive you as rude are wrong, is
  nothing short of despicable.  People like you are the reason I have no
  _desire_ to share code with anyone, anymore.  People like you are the
  reason I generally let others deal with newbies.  Too many of you turn
  out to remain clueless, anyway.
  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
