Wow, I wasn't aware that this was inappropriate forum etiquette. Part of the reason I posted it here was because I realized I had accidentally posted it in Server Side Java on the other site. I was looking to reach a more general Java audience, perhaps the one marked New to Java even, by posting here.
I did not see anything about this in the Code of Conduct which I did bother to read btw.

Imagine I walk up to you on the street and ask you for the time and before you have a chance to answer, I turn to another person and ask them and before they ask turn to yet another person and ask them etc etc. Contrast that to asking one person for the time and waiting for their reply.
I don't know about you but I certainly would be pi$$ed off if someone did that to me.
You are comparing apples and oranges in my opinion. I am not speaking to just one person and then turning to another in the same vicinity. I directed questions at 2 rather vast groups of people that happen to be a mix of same/different people.
As I already explained I felt that this forum would better reach my correct target audience.
My apologies if I have broken an unwritten rule here, it was never my intention to offend anyone.
