I use Thunderbird.  Your replies were formatted poorly.  Maybe *you* need
to learn to use your mail client.

I wasn't offering you any help, so I hadn't commented before.  As a mere
*user*, I often have little to offer.  You should realize that *developers*
like Carl are volunteers, and don't have any obligation to reply to you.  If
you annoy them with garbage after repeated requests, don't be surprised if
they start ignoring you.

Hope this helps you understand how you are coming across.
