I don't think he meant it as a personal comment. I think he only was meaning to help you by pointing out how your tone was percieved and suggesting a better method of getting support. I think his point was that the more positive you are the more likely it is that someone will want to help you, so it is important on forums to pay careful attention to how your tone is percieved in order to get the most benefit.

If someone mistakenly percieves you as having an attitude, then they may think you would respond with criticism of them if they did try to help. Lots of people are here helping out of the kindness of their hearts and with not other intent but to help others, their feelings towards those people and the thanks they experience at the end are the reason why they do it, so tone and reaction are important.

It isn't easy to wordsmith a result that an angry person will accept, so often times if you are percieved to be angry or have a chip on your shoulder you will be pushing away the help you are seeking.
