You are very direct and very rude.  If you truly want to help then 
review what you are about to send and if it could be taken wrong 
don't send it.  You can help how people take what you write.  Take 
some advise and read some books that teach you how to be more polite 
and tactful.  You can catch more flies with honey than you can 
vinegar.  People don't care what you know until they know that you 
care.  Another way of saying it is filters can dump anything you send 
in the trash and it won't get read at all.
