Hi, anotheruser. Welcome to LW. Please don’t be upset that some of your comments/posts are getting downvoted, this happens to pretty much everyone who enters this community. But I congratulate you on your first step: becoming a participant rather than a lurker.
There are a lot of questions that this community has already answered, and I’m sure you understand why they wouldn’t want to answer the same questions over and over, hence MixedNuts’ comment, and hence the downvotes. This is nothing personal.
If you haven’t read through the Sequences yet, please do. It will teach you a lot about the things that most people here assume you already know, and it will show you what problems this community is trying to solve and how it’s approaching them.
In the meantime, please continue to participate. Comment, ask other people questions, etc… And let me know if you have any questions.
