Maureen
I apologise for causing you such anger and annoyance. And I am sorry to be
the recipient of your anger which I have to say is somewhat unreasonable.
Unfortunately I have not been doing geneology for 5 years, I have just
started and don't know who Conrad is or any of the other insider references
you have stated.
I asked a civil question and your response is disappointing. If you don't
like my question, you were not required to answer it.
All of us have some specialist knowledge of some subjects Maureen, I am 100%
confident I will know some things that you don't and would not dream of
being so elitist and rude about my knowledge. Everyone else on this site,
without exception, has been generous and kind, yours is the first arrogant
and exclusionist response I have had.
I am once again, sorry to have caused you such excessive and uncontrolled
anger.
Lynda Price
