I offer my apologies for offending anyone here. That TRULY was not my intent at all. I simply was letting people know how pleased I was with Ryan, that he was someone that got back to me, and I tried giving him some publicity in return. Unfortunatley, due to my lack of providing a back-story of recent experiences I've had with attempts at contacting plug-in developers outside of this forum, things turned a bit sour.
My comment about plug-in developers not responding was by no means directed to the ones here; it was directed to the ones outside of this forum. But like I said that's my fault for not explaining appropriately.
True, as you may have seen from a recent post of mine, I have grown a little upset with not getting the help I've requested here. The help just seemed to stop abruptly. Maybe I had too many questions? I don't know. If so, or for any other reason, I apologize for that, too. But in fairness, with the amount of traffic I see coming through here, I'm surprised that somebody didn't have the time to respond, WP developer or not.
Out of respect for the WP support team, I try to lighten the load here by asking the developers themselves there, which they also have publicized as a valid means of offering support. I've even seen a post or two from people here suggesting such a tactic. And if that didn't work, then I'd try here. Those type of posts have gotten responses.
But let me say again: please accept my apologies for offending. That was not my intent. Your (and everybody's) help is very much appreciated.
