Should I just have gone along with your ideas? When I look back on it, it might have been all right if I'd just done the "homework". But then maybe it's too late now because I've blown up at everyone who was bothering to listen.
I think most people still in the forum have learned by now not to take your occasional blow-ups too seriously. I know I have.

A couple things:
1. I think this thread is for everybody. Between then, gnunix and Elijah have posted a half-dozen times. That shouldn't be ignored given how low participation in these forums is in general.
2. It's very telling that you characterise me helping you to learn a language as "Linguoboy-versus-Tikolm". You seem to view interactions through a very adversarial filter and I'm not sure what can be done to change that.
3. It's important to understand that no one here is trying to humiliate your or set you up for failure. But if you're not realistic about what your capabilities are and where you can improve, you'll never make any progress--not just in learning Welsh, but in anything.
