The vast majority of what I've experienced in the last ~20 years has 
been people willing to help others who are trying to help themselves.

If you are trying, make an honest mistake, and are willing to correct it 
when others politely let you know, you will quite likely find people 
willing to help you.  Especially if you return the favor in kind.

If you are being a hooligan and not responding to problems reported to 
you or purposefully ~> wantonly doing things to others ... good luck.
