That is a somewhat harsh way to say that you disagree.

I have never done video streaming myself, by any method, but the
people who give advice say they can guide non-wizards.

(I would post the email address here, but it seems unkind
to post someone's email address publicly without asking.
I asked them if it is ok.)

I can't make sense of that statement.  Surely the ease of streaming is
not a function of how I wrote the message.

I have doubts about that.  A URL might be better for a wizard, who
could read it immediately rather than waiting for a response.
However, for someone who is not a wizard, personal guidance from an
expert is likely to be more helpful.  You can ask the expert to
explain any point that you don't understand -- something that you
can't do with a URL.

Let's suppose, for the sake of argument, that the URL is more helpful
than offering to put you in touch with an expert.  What's the right
way to respond to something that is helpful but could have been more
so?  "Why didn't you do it the other way?" seems ungrateful and

I will ask them for a URL I could post.
