Although I’ve never used instant messaging, I don’t think your being a jerk at all
One of the side effects of posting on the board is the numerous off-site requests for information. I average 10 - 12 a day. Once, when I posted an illustration of a flipping scenario based on terms of sale I received over one hundred emails in a two day period. It’s not a deliberate slight, but folks pushed down in the stack are still waiting for a reply.
I really can’t imagine the number of emails that are received every day by Ron Starr, JohnBoy, Steve Cook, or Joe Kaiser.
I read a suggestion to use one email address exclusively for posts on CREonline. Unfortunately, I read it after I had used my main email address a hundred times. You may have better luck.
