If you couldn't fill the survey form, replying to the OP would have been

I don't see such reply in this thread. Was it sent to you alone and not to
this list?

Whatever, while taking part in such forums, you should be ready to accept
criticism and learn from it. Sometimes it might feel harsh for a newbie,
but you should get used to straight forward replies.

I'm not sure what you meant by poor. If you were talking about economical
status, definitely it's not so nice to talk about it here. Else, the reply
makes no sense. Either way, there is no insult, IMO.

Come on dude, get rid of this complaining attitude. This is a community. If
you feel something is not right, just say so. Don't humiliate yourself. If
you say something wrong, you would learn it from the replies to it. But
*learning* from the mistakes is very important.
