.... your "donate" with "denote", it is as if you wrote, "Since you question how to indicate more than one of a thing either you are lost in all this or dare I say trolling."
With that in mind, I ask you what indication of more than one of a thing it is you think I'm questioning?
All I asked is if the answer to my original post is a) or b). The only time and forum/thread space anyone has to consume to answer my question is the very very very short answer "a", "b", or "I don't know". Any one of those answers would take all of a couple seconds to do.
You say you have non-authoritative answers. Why would someone ask a question and want an answer that is non-authoritative? ALL a questioner would want is an authoritative (correct) answer. I'm not here looking for someone to start a slightly nonsensical conversation that appears at first glance to be somewhat loosely related to what I asked about.
Why do you keep mentioning your son's studies?
You're telling me that based upon the existence of your son's related studies, and based on your experience using camcorders, that you advise me to contact the camera manufacturer for the answer to my questions?
Well, you may find it interesting and maybe helpful to know that someone without those studies or experience is just as able to suggest to someone to contact the manufacturer.
The whole point of this forum is as a replacement or supplement to contacting the manufacturer.
What does "IRL" mean?
You say you "did answer", but you didn't say which of my many questions you're saying you answered. I also don't see anywhere that you answered my original question, which, again, would only require an "a", "b" or "I don't know". Where is this answer of yours that you're referring to? What was it?
As you correctly stated, I did ask, "what does it mean to write mics?"; however, you replied with a suggestion that I don't want the use of "mics", instead of addressing and actually answering my actual question about what "to write mics" means.
This demonstrates that you either missed, misunderstood, forgot and/or ignored the multiple times I used the word "mic" or "mics" in my original post/question. My multiple use of that word clearly demonstrates I understand what "mic" means. Your suggestion of me not wanting the use of "mics" is, at best, inept and misleading, and at worst, disingenuous and makes any reader question your motive for replying to this thread.
SO - are you going to answer about what "to write mics" means? Or answer any other questions about your ambiguous and/or non-sensical answers you've put on this thread?
How about skip all that, and just do as I've suggested/requested several times now, and just answer my original question with an "a", "b" or "I don't know"?
