    Thank you, Guenter and Dan.  And I do not think Dan was angry, too.
 I'm just tired to be patiently explaining trivial things, like the
rules of YouTube, if that blocks communication.

    And it's "she", not "he".

    Also I may not be as young as you might think, although I guess Dan
is a little elder than me.

    To the point of communication:  Actually, its my experience all
these years to be short and terse.  From my past experience short and
terse mails get read more effectively.  But this is not a standard in
nature.  Human communication is complicated.  Everyone has her/his own
mind, and I sometimes still get into trouble.

    So, what I asked is a little kindness and patience, but not focusing
on what I had done wrong.  I'm not expecting everyone to like my work.
It's fine if you do not like it.  But I was not expecting to be treated
as a scam twice by a same single person, and then another is analyzing
my mistake as if it looks like a scam by nature, but not by a same
single person.

    I cannot control what a single person may think, though.  It's just
a single person who started this, and this still frustrated me.
