  You ask vague questions.  We ask for more information, and you refuse.

  How, exactly, do you expect us to help you?

  Yes.  You don't answer questions we ask.  You don't follow instructions.

  So it's simple.  Do you want to fix the problem?  Or do you want to ask questions, and then ignore everything we tell you?

  You keep saying that.  I keep asking you for more information.  You *always* refuse to give more information.

  Do you understand that I'm asking questions for a *reason*?  That I really, truly, do need more information in order to help you?  That I'm *trying* to help you?  And that you insist on making it as hard as possible for me to help you?

  It's not trivial to create such a system.  If you don't know how to build a system which does 10K packets per second, then you shouldn't promise people that you can build one.

  Which means you're looking at *very* high level information.  And (like on this list) refusing to look at any more *detailed* information which can help you solve the problem.

  Yes, you do.  It's *your* fault that you refuse to answer any questions I ask.

  It's simple: either answer the questions we ask, or stop posting on the list.  We ask questions because we need more information.  If you refuse to give us information, you are making it impossible for us to help you.

  And, if you complain that I'm being mean and unhelpful, you will be unsubscribed from the list, and permanently banned from it.

  This list is for people who want to solve problems.  People who post the same question over and over and over, and then ignore all attempts to help them are NOT welcome here.
