.... I appreciate the feedback and the explanation.
I find it offensive that someone asking a question
is mocked for asking the question.
The responses you got were written in a friendly manner,
like acquaintances bantering about automotive subjects.
No mocking was intended, even though your original
post invited it. An inquiry such as, "My manual has
a multi-step procedure for a battery change. Is this
something new?" is almost as obscure as, "My car
made a funny noise and stopped. What is wrong?"
When you provided enough additional information for
someone to offer help, your inquiry was answered.
Please continue to post on this newsgroup for friendly
help with automotive problems. The knowledge available
here is priceless.
