  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

So the T&C linked to are wrong?
No, your "us vs. them" attitude is uncalled for.

I got this response from my e-mail, my spouse's e-mail hasn't received any such response yet. Are people calling them, e-mailing, tweeting? Lol, I can't stand this waiting period!
