Am I in this category?

I wonder..

Your use of nomenclature not matching that of the rest of the community is a 
sure fire way to be misunderstood and brushed off.

Yes, people shouldn't just ignore you because you used the wrong name, but 
since those people are very busy they are guessing you are probably just a 
troll, or clueless.. This sort of attitude is necessary otherwise you'd waste 
heaps of time dealing with clueless people or trolls.
