Most of the "advice" I've seen posted here has, as far
as I can tell, not intended to be useful but to serve 
as a way to telling you are incompetent are in other ways
insulting or useless.  I think you are quite right to 
ignore it (or tell the poster to get lost.)

Long before you showed up here, I noticed the tendency
to not answer questions directly but to jerk people off 
by giving hints or telling them to do something other
than they want to do.

Often that is good because the original request was 
for something that the OP really didn't want to do.
But sometimes the OP knows they want to do (but doesn't 
want or is unable to clearly explain why) and when 
they clearly state that, yes, they do want to do it 
their way, their question should be answered in good 
faith or, for those who just can't tell how to do 
something "wrong", ignored.

Instead the response is typically a lot of hostility 
directed at them for not "taking advice".  In other
words, the advice here is not free advice, but come 
with the price that you are expected to except it 
gratefully whether it was what you asked for or not.

I think you are quite right to reject advice that does 
not do what you want and ask again for advice that does.

FWIW, I am quite sure there are other readers of this 
group who feel the same way, but most people aren't  
willing to subject themselves to the bullying that
will be directed at anyone who publicly agrees with you.
It is the same way in real life too as I'm sure
you know.

Just wanted to let you know that not everybody here
is an asshole.  It is just that assholes, by their 
nature, are the loudest.
