thank you so much for your answer.
I am not yelling at developers, I am merely asking for help in a sea of
misunderstanding. The entire note I sent was
supposed to be a gently humorous way of attracting some attention as I was
Nowhere whatsoever on the web sites that I discovered does it actually help me
find the right place to ask.
The only possible answer that I found was using the "Contact Us" connection.
Following that, I had to choose a path with insufficient information as to
which would be the correct path to choose.
For a beginner to find their way through these reefs and whirlpools is
bewildering in the extreme. So I had, It
appeared, to register in some group or other, just to ask a basic question. How
do I, without insider knowledge, decide
upon the best course of action.
So I chose one and sent a covering note to say that I was uncertain as to which
path to choose and would be grateful
for some navigational help.
I was totally unaware that I would receive such unfriendly and insulting
replies from people, some of whom seem, at
first glance, to live in an ivory tower. So I trod on some toes it seems, but
with no intention of so doing, and with
little or no help to guide me. I have ignored the first 7, yes that is SEVEN,
insulting eMails that I have received, in
one of which, the author suggested I find better manners, whilst then proceding
to insult me again. Double-standards
appear to exist in these rarified strati.
Personally, I can take the insults you and others have dished out, but I do not
understand the reference to
"yelling". I have not yelled at anyone, I have merely highlighted a part of my
mesasge as my eMail program does not
allow any underlines, colour, italivcs or anything like that.
Perhaps, if you have the time, you would be able to discuss this with me
personally without any need for insults.
And no, I was not "smart enough" to go to such a site, as I was simply unaware
that it existed. It is very kind of
you to point out the existence of that resource, which I will now be able to
So I will remember the next time I see a drowning man, to make sure that I
insult him from the safety of the river
bank as I moan about his manners to all and sundry.
Yours most enlightenedly,

So you are not smart enough to go to the GIMP user manual at
http://docs.gimp.org/ and to enter the term "Language" into the Search
box? Instead you decided to yell at the developers. I think you should
better start to pay for your software. Please stop to use Free Software,
