    I simply don't treat a mod any differently than anyone else, including you, and for good reason.

    And thanks for tanking yet another thread with unnecessary personal insult and trash-talk.
    That's true. You are critical of EVERYONE.

    I just refuse to do free tech-support for family and friends ever. Seriously, you will save yourself a lot of headache and frustration by simply refusing to do it, or charge a normal fee (trade is good too, have dad(in-law) fix your car, etc.

    I always tell dad "You bought it, you have to figure it out". Unless it's something that I recommended or installed, and then I am happy to help. Funny thing, that Ubuntu box hasn't caused him to barrage me with questions like his damned windoze install used to every day.

    Give a fish or teach to fish, yadda yadda.

    A little much in the attitude I think, but I know what you mean about the lack of tech knowledge. I lost count of the number of times my father called to ask "how do I attach a document to an email" Makes you want to

    In the end you have to just acknowledge there are people you are less knowledgeable than others when it comes to computers. It also helps if one's Mother is more intuitive with tech and can teach Father how to do some things - less phone calls.

    While visiting my aunt one day, I was "borrowing" the neighbor's wifi. She thought I was a computer genious... She then yelled at me for "trying to hack into the neighbor's bank accounts". I was browsing Precentral lol.

    She still uses AOL dialup and keeps EVERYTHING on the Desktop. She also has every toolbar known to mankind installed on her laptop...
