if you are new around here that you are not familiar “of the rules” as you put it.
Without the intention of speaking for Mr. Garcia, the point he was trying to make with you was that unless you KNOW the answer, don’t answer.
There are lots of folks on this site with varying degrees of knowledge and I think you can see that if a ‘newbie’ asks a question and gets a wrong answer, it doesn’t help s/he at all and may in fact cost them a great deal!
The idea is to have a CREDIBLE resource and environment in which all of us can learn and share ACCURATE information. This can only be accomplished when those with the knowledge share it, and those of us without the knowledge (at least in that particular area) listen.
Stick around. This is a great site with great information.
