One member went on for hundreds of words explaining what an imposition it was to respond helpfully, and managed to be quite patronizing while not giving the merest hint as to his own advanced understanding.
To all out there who might find yourself leaning to that camp, please remember my AVS handle, know that I might be looking to learn something, know that I apologize in advance for asking, and also know that you can skip my post and not feel the least inclination to respond -- I think it quite likely I will not find it helpful.
And beyond that, from some of the responses I've gotten, as well as those withheld, I think I'm inclined to believe folks are just embarassed to admit they don't have any better understanding than I do. I note my central questions were, and have been to this moment, avoided, though a few have also chimed in with earnest intention to be of service.
Thanks for standing squarely with and for the advancement of knowledge, I'm sure we all appreciate the charitable investment of your time and energies...meant sincerely to those that tried to help, and less sincerely to the rest....
There are lots of threads about clipping in these forums, if you'd care to do the research--that's what the search button is for. You have been given the cliff notes version of what clipping is in the last couple pages of this thread. It's poor form to expect the people who can really go in depth about it to explain it to you personally, when it's been discussed in depth multiple times.
The reason I
referred you to the other site is because it has the EXACT information you asked for--the timestamps of where the clipping occurs. Instead of taking the time or effort to look up the graph, you expect someone to describe to you where the 15-20 plus points of clipping are. Sorry, not gonna do it. Maybe someone else will.
People are very helpful on these forums, but if you feel it too much of an inconvenience on YOUR TIME to do any research whatsoever, then don't be surprised at the less than enthusiastic response you get.
