	The lack of knowledge is fine; not everyone is an expert.  The
	laziness and sloth, however, isn't fine.  I can't speak for
	others, but my specific issue with the whole entitlement
	thing is the fact that some people are just plain lazy and
	refuse to lift a finger or exert any effort to help themselves
	and yet expect others to do so for them.  Sorry, I don't play
	that game.  Had he shown *any* effort to resolve these issues
	on his own most people would have gone the extra mile to help
	him.

	I had already planned on bit-bucketing him until I saw his
	latest reply and it rankled to the point that I needed to
	say something, however out of place and unwanted my comments
	might have been.

voice and a business suit.
