    I, and probably the others, understand that the whole Wii-hacking scene can be a bit overwhelming and confusing.
    It's not like we think people are stupid because they don't understand something, but it's the way they word everything. They always expect us to spoon-feed, and they insult us if we don't do something the way they want us to do it, with a few exceptions of course; there are several people who do respect the help of the members, and show their appreciation, or even donate to the site. If these people can do it this way, everybody can if they take the time. As oddgriffin said, some people think the world owes them everything.
    Aside from that, naming somebody a jerk or a prick, even while he/she is trying to help you, is simply lame, or rather said, disrespectful.

    Yes, nothing like a reminder like that (though I'm sure, it'll fall on deaf ears based on this user's propensities thus far). OP: let me remind you, the world doesn't owe you a thing --- trust me on this. Perhaps you may be young, inattentive, and trash-mouthed and maybe that's worked for you (in some imagination not of this world) thus far --- this is when two worlds (yours) and reality collide. Guess which remains standing? It ain't yours...

    It's very disrespectful and un-needed. He needs to chill if he wants help. he should also try to research a lil bit. I understand how you guys feel. I dont think anyone should be "spoonfed" but i do think that people deserve a push in the right direction without sarcasm or insult.. This stuff is a lot to take in.. I spent half the night last night researching what the best direction to go with my hdd. There are so many different directions to go with all this stuff that little things are very overwhelming at times.. {lack of sleep doesnt help that} Iunno. I dont agree with his reaction at all.. But I also think a little patience all around couldnt hurt.. "Just because the man before me is a prick doesnt mean the next man to stand before me is.."

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    @ shift_lock and the other guy who is understanding and all knowing. If you guys wanna help this guy, feel free to do it in PM or in another thread that doesn't contain this sort of fail. This one is closed, as he obviously can't and shouldn't be helped on the issue, and some others haven't been at this sort of thing long enough to be a critic of folks who have been here for many months and with almost a thousand posts of trying to help others, just to be flamed like that.

    Never quantify your life by comparison. It is always going to be apples to oranges. If you feel the need to always look down on others, you currently do not own enough mirrors------ Tommie Griffin.
