such rude remarks say a lot about you.... not impressive. You
can do better than that. The man you replied to offered good
research and a good solution.
On the alt.hvac situation, I agree... I had never run into
such a bunch of abusive appliance repair people in my
life...when I tried to show them the high of the HVAC business
(industrial systems etc they faded or just got more abusive.)

A few days ago I invited the readers of my blog to tell me why I'm stupid.
The results are in.
If you are new to the Internet, allow me to explain how to debate in this
When one person makes any kind of statement, all you need to do is apply one
these methods to make it sound stupid. Then go on the offensive.
1. Turn someone's generality into an absolute. For example, if someone
general statement that Americans celebrate Christmas, point out that some
are Jewish and so anyone who thinks that ALL Americans celebrate Christmas
stupid. (Bonus points for accusing the person of being anti-Semitic.)
2. Turn someone's factual statements into implied preferences. For
someone mentions that not all Catholic priests are pedophiles, accuse the
who said it of siding with pedophiles.
3. Turn factual statements into implied equivalents. For example, if
that Ghandi didn't eat cows, accuse the person of stupidly implying that
deserve equal billing with Gandhi.
4. Omit key words. For example, if someone says that people can't eat
the person of being stupid for suggesting that people can't eat. Bonus
arguing that some people CAN eat pebbles if they try hard enough.
5. Assume the dumbest interpretation. For example, if someone says that
he can run
a mile in 12 minutes, assume he means it happens underwater and argue that
one can hold his breath that long.
6. Hallucinate entirely different points. For example, if someone says
on trees, accuse him of saying snakes have arms and then point out how
stupid that is.
7. Use the intellectual laziness card. For example, if someone says that
ice is cold,
recommend that he take graduate courses in chemistry and meteorology before
jumping to stupid conclusions that display a complete ignorance of the
complexity of ice.

How about the DIY that gets in to trouble? Then they'll come crawling to a
pro to dig themselves out. What if the DIY kills themself or their family?
I work with DIY's quite a bit. The lay the tube and I do the hookups.
