And you don't know how to ask one. You started your post with the 'Start a Discussion' button, not the 'Ask a Question' button. 'Questions' in the proper forum are treated more seriously than 'Discussions' here at TR, and are rarely ridiculed.
Another reason you caught flak is that you could have Googled or Wikipediad your topic in less time than it took you to join TR and start your discussion.
