You received one moderately helpful response followed by very helpful
response followed by an extremely helpful response that included the
sentence "Looking at the page, you seem to have a fundamental
misunderstanding of how label elements work and the syntax rules for HTML."

The fact is though that looking at the page you seem to have a fundamental
misunderstanding of how label elements work and the syntax rules for HTML.
How exactly do you want that sugar-coated?

David spent time explaining the syntax issue, how for attributes work (and
why they don't in your example), other errors, and pointed you to a tool
that would help you trace these errors.

You then spent time complaining about his help that could be better spent
following his advice. Or perhaps learning the value of gratitude.
