A few months ago I was having some problems in respite of WiFi
asked this list about them. I got a response from "poma" which was
cryptic and (to me) incomprehensible, but after a bit of nudging "poma"
me with a step-by-step recipe to diagnose and rectify my problem. So I
that he (I assume "he") can be kind and helpful if approached properly
I never did get around to thanking "poma" for his assistance; this was
of me. My apologies to "poma".
That being said I do find most of his (?) posts to be cryptic, flippant,
unutterably terse and impossible to understand. It is not clear to me
he aims at being bewildering or simply doesn't realize that no-one (or
anyone) else in the world is on his wave-length.
At any rate I would hesitate to write him off as a "troll" or to ignore
completely. Just treat most of his posts with a shrug and delete them.
will be (probably) be the occasional useful gem.
