    I have the answer: A Jerk. Notice how every question he responds with "what
    are you trying to play", "where is the file located", blah, blah, blah.

    Obviously this brilliant man (or woman) get very upset when one uses
    upper-case - one question was entirely ignored due to its case. Lanier's
    response was 'Fix your keyboard'.

    At last someone does answer the required questions and guess what - Chris
    Lanier (who probably does have a solution anyway) is nowhere to be found.

    Thanks 'Mr. MVP'! What a great contributor you are! I bet you're also a

  2. LOL. You wake up early from your nap today? I notice that you don't post
    anything. Come on, you must be a smart person, right? Start posting and
    show me up. Not like I would care, this is not my job. This is peer
    support you loser.

    Those questions are in line with the questions posed by:
    , which is a very watered down version of
    , really.

    This is a peer support community-
    , and if people are able to provide solutions with as little of information
    as is often provided here, I commend their skills and intelligence. I
    personally find it nigh impossible to make heads nor tails of about 40% of
    the traffic here due to how little information is provided. Since there are
    a lot of posts that are painful to sort through, my personal tolerance for
    rambling essays or acerbic commentary or ALL CAPS is pretty low too : some
    people ignore 'em (me), some people suggest that it's good to turn off the
    CAPS from time to time (Chris). Whatever tickles your fancy. =)

    If you feel you can do better, please do so, and I mean that in a nice way.
    I'm a fan of helping others (which is why *I'm* here), and I appreciate when
    people take the time themselves to help others. If there's additional
    information that could be added to the MS error pages, or that kind of thing
    to ease user frustrations, that's interesting to me too.

    Ideally I'd like to see WMP10 users just never have to use this newsgroup
    for their problems - just build into the online error pages and online MS
    WMP FAQ enough information to sort everyone out. But until that day, I and
    others at MS personally appreciate the efforts of Chris, Mike, and others
    who help out here. =)

    Regardless, we're all in this world together.

    (speaking for myself and doing this in my free time)
    See http://www.zachd.com/pss/pss.html for some helpful WMP info.
    Following up to your post with the resolution is good netiquette.

    Hear, hear. To understand many of these posts you have to be some what of a
    mind reader. I think this group is especially difficult due to the level of
    user involved with WMP. On other groups (blah.blah.kernel for instance)
    each post is very well written and full of information. Not to mention WMPs
    integration with and use of so many other features on a computer. It's a
    wonder any of it ever works. Maybe that is why Real and MusicMatch just
    take over everything and do what they want; like AOL.
