This probably has very little to do with those people being "stuck up". It sounds like you deserved to get flamed. You shouldn't be posting questions in a programming forum if you "don't really want to get back into programming." You're asking for help but openly admitting you're not willing to do the legwork to understand what people are telling you. It's asking to be spoonfed. It's everything this thread is talking about. You ARE one of those people.
