I didn't think Cathy was all that harsh. Regardless of topic, if you post more than a dozen items on the same topic, and no one responds (or maybe one or two do to be polite) maybe this isn't the audience for that topic. I've brought up several topics over the years that didn't get much traction, and I just moved on to something else. Also, if you're often complaining, and people offer helpful advice and ask further questions to better target their advice which you don't respond to, don't be surprised if over time people stop responding to you. If you want to vent, just say so, and others will commiserate.
