Appylover, I know which forum you are talking about because I am a member too :) I've just seen you thread, and I think the last person who replied to you was downright rude and completely out of order!!
She's probably the sort of person who "has been around horse and had horses all her life", so she looks down her nose at everyone else!! People like that can never be constructive or civil to people who actually ask questions because they think that if people aren't as "knowledgeable" as them, they think they can bring them down instead of offering advice!! Chin up and don't let them upset you!
