I think on the internet, those who have bad behavior, or rude , or unthankful behavior, have those traits magnified by the anonymity. Whereas face to fasce, they are forced to at least show some civility, on the internet they have little repercussion for poor behavior. Especially when they have what they wanted.

But there are also those who are not used to posting on forums, and in fact, may avoid it due to personality, aversion, shyness, etc. They may just be unfamiliar with protocol. I tend to assume the latter is the case, and believe the best of people unless they prove otherwise. Hoping they got their problem solved, and are left a little better off for it. Much better to think you helped someone, even if they didn't acknowledge it

I would like to second those sentiments. Just one thing bugs me a bit though, often when I read a thread for the first time I look at the OP's other posts and so often they have asked questions, had a reply, not bothering to acknowledge the reply before asking their next question. These members are often quite clearly fully conversant with how a Forum works.
End of Gripe! I try to rmember that it takes all sorts to make the world go round!

BSODs while idle; Driver Verifier report report available
I'll try and make this concise: BSODs occur even while desktop is not in use. Memory_Management and PFN_LIST_CORRUPT is what I remember seeing. Also: IE9, IE10 and IE11 all "stop working" randomly. Chrome - ditto. FF32 - ditto. I've run Memtest86 (10 passes) no errors. The last BSOD was...
