Whow... And what the >beeeeeep< is wrong with Attila's reply?

I've been watching this list for quite a while now, and i do have to say 
about it that there are lists
out in the net which are more idiot-friendly (Note i did not say "Newbie").

But hey, this is not the support desk of any SW-Company where guys and 
girls get paid to deal with
these " I do not have the slightest guess about anything and did not 
even read the manual because there
were so many of these little black bastards which i do not like because 
they are causing me headaches and i just want my movie to play fine can 
you please manage this" - people.

Dealing  with digital video  *is*  a  somehow complicated in it's 
basics  (made me threw up dunno-how-many-times),
so it's quite impossible to discuss the system basics again and again in 
a user group which by it's nature is dedicated to the use of one special 

And b.t.w. : This kind of exspective asking and being upset about not 
getting an answer which meets the asking persons approvals
seems to be typically german to me - i  ( You may flame my butt if you 
find the spare time and haven't got anything better to do - i'm german 
myself). Would you thing of that the Internet is *not* provided by your 
gouvernment and *not* paid of your taxes?
