I've started to notice a pattern this past year and it's come in the form of pm's. While I've enjoyed writing several guides and tutorials on various email marketing strategies some users have gone above and beyond the expectation of free guidance by asking for help directly via pm. This isn't too bad. And I can understand if you're frustrated with a specific aspect of something that it might not hurt to simply ask an expert. However, some users push their luck. They request help via AIM, Skype or some other chat medium. Myself and other users here don't mind posting advice. Periodically, I don't even mind pointing someone in the right direction in response to a pm. However, why in fuck would I take time out of my day to add you as a friend in Skype - just so that I can hold the hand of a stranger to answer your newbie questions? Do you think we have nothing better to do? And furthermore, how did you conceive the notion in your mind that we would simply waste our fucking time answering your questions anyways? Do you think if I sent a PM to a money making guru like Donald Trump and said "Hey, do you mind if I call you throughout the day to ask you questions about how to make money" ...that he would oblige without question to a complete stranger?
