Clearly reminds me that intentions and perceptions are two different things.

Nice idea, but I was thinking of it more like walking into a Boston bar and saying "I'd like to learn a bit about baseball, but I'd like to start just by getting a ball and bat and learning to hit. Throwing and catching, I'll leave for a bit later; and the rulebook too, if I decide to join an actual team." And since I'm the one who's doing this, I'm actually pretty accurate concerning what my intentions were.
The response is making me think, "This bar is not the place for me, until I've decided to invest time, money, effort, and pretty much my whole existence in this game."
