      Beating the horse of "I had a negative experience" into the ground past
      skeletal is also not helpful and can be used as a reason by some to not use
      the advice or seek out help from such persons in their geographical area.

      I would not deny that some have had bad experiences; however, I would rather
      emphasize the good experiences I, or others, have had. If a group of people
      is generally regarded as unhelpful or unfreindly they will be seen as such
      even by those without first-hand knowledge of that group. The group will
      then act in the manner it is treated. If a group is treated well and as
      helpful and sought out for their specialty they will, in turn, become more
      helpful and be viewed as such.

      Continually harping on a negative experience does no one any good.
