I am not surprised that you have missed the point. No, "strangers" do not want to "help you for free". Personally, I contribute to discussion forums (and have for decades) to educate others to the point that they can participate in the discussion and teach _me_ something. That's the payment I expect for my "free" advice.

You are just here to ask a never ending stream of simple-minded questions. We cannot tell whether you are heeding the advice, whether you have learned anything, or are capable of giving advice to others in the future.

Others have dropped the same hint to you, in various subtle ways, and you have not replied. So I'm being more blunt about it. If you are capable, you need to change your behavior. And if you are not capable... well, you need to become capable.

I also contribute to this forum like you do. They may be simple for you but I learned from it and executed it. I have replied to everyone.
