Self-taught, programming professionally since 2006.
Just how fond am I of rhetorical questions?
If I edit your post and mention "removed X bait", it's because you said something that sounded close/delete-worthy, but wasn't. Caution is recommended in future.
I do not answer questions mistakenly directed to the email address I purposely do not list here. Ask them on SO, or if you're question-banned, work on that.
