Why do I bother?

sometimes I wonder why I go to other forums,cooper's forums in particular. I posted my 1st IPA recipe. It included a can of their OS Draught as a base. Did they like,or at least appreciate it? Nope. Instead I got flamed for wasting 6oz of hops. And 20-30 minute additions are bittering. Sha,& wild hops'll fly outta my butt! I tried to explain things,but to no avail. Maybe jealous that a bloody yank is showing them up? I'm not sure.At least over here,I get some consideration. It is kind of annoying when I post a thread & hear crickets chirping,or one word replies. Not sure how to feel about that. I'm proud that my ales came out good. The APA,I thought,was darn good. I know we're never too old to learn,so I try. But,I get down under,& just when I start to think I'm one of the guys,I find out I'm not.
