Except in this case, it really has.
As Mr Townsend pointed out, your title blew out of all proportions what could have been a nice useful post into one that stank of hyperbole. You built it up and 'marketed' it as some holy grail of unfindable advice. When you were politely told this, you seem to fly off the handle. Calling people names. Calling Mr Townsend ignorant.
I work in marketing.
With a cool head in the morning read all this thread as if you were a 3rd party. Say, a young magician (your target audience). See if you think you come across as a nice, gracious man trying to help others, or as an annoyed, angry and rude name-calling ungreatful oddball.
I mean no disrepect, I am not trying to be rude, I am not trying to insult you. But I think they way you have reacted here has done you no favours.
