No flames here either. But I do enjoy seeing a basic answer, and then an "in depth" answer. The basic answer makes me interested in the "why it works". So when someone goes into detail, there is usually an answer to the "why it works". To somebody who does not understand the "why it works", then yes the in depth answer is a waste of time. But to me, the more detail presented, the more I can learn.
I am in the process of designing the lightest weight, shortest length, most efficient antenna that covers 40 - 10 M to use on my dx vacation to the Philippines. So the "why it works" is very helpful.
So the thing to remember is that the forum can be a wealth of information. And those who "teach" beyond the basics are appreciated by those who may already know the basics, but want to learn more. But the basic answer works well for those who are just looking for the quick answer. So both are useful to the readers.
The audience is often more then the original poster! So kudos to those who provide any type of answer.
