I can understand how things got blow out of proportion.
The suggestion about finding another list could probably
interpreted many ways. I don't think Alex meant you should
go find a list for morons. There are other people who suggest
that occasionally, but I've not seen so much as an RTFM
This will be the last post on the subject. If I see another post
to the list about this, that user will be put in a MODERATED mode.
I had thought about doing that with you, but I think that once
we all back up and look at the situation, it was an isolated
Also, when things are p-mailed, it is generally accepted that
the p-mail is not copied back to the list. If you had done this
in the first place (and in subsequent e-mails as well), this
problem may have been a little less messy.

I have appologized to the list, and I will happily to do so again. I
should not have behaved in the way I did. I was just very frustrated to
see such an insulting response to my first posting on what I expected
would be and helpful list. I am sorry for my language.
I am also sorry that I did not word my posting very well. I was simply
trying to figure out what the best way to seperatley monitor traffic on
two IPs that are on the same Ethernet card. I am not a networking expert,
and I do no claim to be. However, I am far from ignorant, as well.
But that is beside the point. Even if I WAS ignorant, you guys really
ought to consider being a little gentler with the people that don't yet
know what they are doing. How do you expect MRTG to grow and such without
a postive atmosphere from its user base?
I'd like to thank Trent Melcher for deciphering my poorly written email
and providing me with a very complete answer. I did thank Alex for his
help, as he WAS quite helpful in his original post. It was the subsequent
"find another list" comment that got me going.
If I should "find another list" because I'm not an expert, then maybe you,
or someone here, can direct me to the list for morons? I didn't see it
listed on the MRTG homepage.
Once again, I am sorry for my language.
Thanks for understanding,
