You forgot the bit about, In your opinion "ZoneAlarm is by far the easiest firewall to set up and use."

Not everyone is going to agree with that statement and have their opinion. We are all different, our systems are all different, I gave up on Zone Alarm over 7 years ago and have used various forms of Agnitum's Outpost Firewall, which I have found to be pretty easy to set-up and use, plus I have never had any problems with it.

Yet you had problems with it didn't you, does that mean you are totally inept, no it doesn't. People are going to find differences on their system for different firewalls, that is a fact of life so calling someone totally inept is inappropriate. Even if you suffix your statement with No offence intended.

DavidR,

I do remember you once said OP Pro wasn't an easy fw to use.  I guess you chaned your mind. ;D

With modati it was frustrating communicating with him. 

You know how it is with people we are trying to help and they don't the whole story.

Inept or not, he was functionally inept in helping me to help to help him.

in·ept  (n-pt)
adj.
1. Not apt or fitting; inappropriate.
2.
a. Displaying a lack of judgment, sense, or reason; foolish: an inept remark.
b. Bungling or clumsy; incompetent: inept handling of the account.

He was at least bungling or clumsy in communicating the problem.

DavidR,

I certainly don't recall that, I would be happy for you to post the reference/link and see what the context of the post is within the topic. As I said before I have been using Outpost for over seven years, even longer than the six and a half years on the forums, so I would imagine by that time I would have been pretty familiar with it.

I also didn't say others said they found it pretty easy but me, a lot depends on what settings you choose when you install as to how much you will get in the way of pop-ups, the same for most firewalls.


With modati it was frustrating communicating with him. 
Then stop communicating and the name calling as that will only perpetuate the communication.

You know how it is with people we are trying to help and they don't the whole story.

Yes I do know how difficult it can be to help some people, it is just as important to retain your control or you drag yourself down if it becomes personal with name calling/denigration, etc. etc. It is just easier to simply make your point and without any slight and don't bother responding.

Which is exactly what I will be doing in this topic which has gone to hell in a hand basket.
