Dear Cavalyr--my apologies for the posts. I guess I misunderstood how things work--it was my understanding that different people go to different forums (I know I pick and choose which ones to go to) so if you're looking for help and your question applies to multiple forums it would be ok to post it where applicable. Furthermore, as I got feedback and since I was so new to this my question started evolving slightly so I wanted to make sure I got the most appropriate answer. I know some people will go to different forums and see that I asked a similar question but I didn't know that out of the 50,000 posts on the forum that it would aggravate anyone. I don't think there is anywhere on here were I asked the same question...yes, I asked for a burner under $50 in general and then in the Lite-On brand specifically...I do consider those 2 different questions, in different forums. Instead of spending your response time crucifying me because I tried to get help from different forums (which I assumed, in general, have DIFFERENT participants--please forgive me if I was wrong) how about being helpful and giving me a suggestion or input on which burner to get??? Regardless, I didn't mean to irritate you (or anyone else) and I wasn't taking my time to post this just because I get a kick out of typing similar questions over and over so I really don't feel the "wow" comments as if you are saying "what an idiot" are necessary. Besides, did you have to post the same "WOW" comment in different forums?!?! Seems like you did just the same thing that you are admonishing me for doing. All you needed to say was "Hey MUSCBoneDoc11, most of us here bounce around the different forums so we'll eventually find your post even if it is in another forum so you don't have to waste your time typing." No need to try to stone me in front of the whole forum (and multiple forums at that) but it's not a big deal. I'm just happy I got some response!
