I would agree that Bob can be curt or short with people at times. However, I feel that you're taking what happened in the InDesign forum too personally. Keep in mind that we are not Adobe employees. We are users like you who come here to help others.
Technology is changing very fast, particularly in digital publishing. What was happening in 2011 can be totally changed in three years. It's important to look for current information. Unfortunately, there is no one who is paid to remove old posts from years ago that people find in Google searches. You're on your own to find more current information.
Good luck to you in your search, and don't get discouraged or angry. We'll help you if you can ask us questions with politeness and respect.
You got that right. I have asked all questions with politeness and respect. You know that yourself.
But when I receive a sharp comment from someone like Bob Levine which is totally inappropriate, it brings out the Sumo Warrior in me. My comments were entirely helpful and I don't know that someone with such a hard edge should be answering the community. Maybe he should take a break. I was having such a fun time - trying to be helpful. He took my comments and spewed out bitterness. OUCH! This exchange could have been avoided by Bob just closing the thread. .... or pointing out nicely that I responded to a thread that was old.
The writing is really small on the discussions, but believe me, I will not make that mistake in the future. Date, Date, Date. Don't dare to reply to an old thread. Big Bob will flush you.
Again, the wet mackerel approach really does set the stage. I have no anger Steve. Thats Bob's mantra. I have defended Adobe Creative Cloud and apps to the core.
But I find that sharp, rude comments deserve a bit of retrospect.
I will simply make sure I look at the dates if I venture out again, to be helpful. I will avoid Bob Levine at all costs. I prefer to surround myself with positive individuals.
Have a wonderful Day Steve.
