Default Re: Being Talked Down To

Had another thought on this.

One thing I've learned over the years is not to ignore patronising people on principle, which is the natural reaction.

I've met a few experts where the "price" they charge for passing on their knowledge is giving you crap to shore up their hungry egos. In that case, it's a good idea to sift the good stuff from the rubbish.
