I have no clue what inflammatory means (and I'm too lazy to find out),
but the link Igor provided was helpful. I recommend you to calm down
and just read it. Or better yet, read it twice.

I'll definitely start using this link in bad bug reports. Igor, this
is just what I have needed, grazie!

So basically you want others do all the work for you? It doesn't work
that way. Try to show that you have tried to do something to solve the
problem, for example by writing as much as info as possible. That way
people might be a bit more motivated to answer.

That's the best way to learn and educate yourself, and in the end you
get better results. But if you insist doing everything your way, don't
be surprised if people are not willing to help you.
