You are probably quite correct, saying a smb.conf was 'awful' wasn't the 
best way of putting it, but I come from an era where people called a 
spade a spade and not an 'earth moving device'. Whilst what I post may 
upset some people (who I never try to upset), it is the way I am, I am a 
product of my upbringing and it seems to be a problem now, people now 
get so upset over the slightest (unintended) thing.

I should have said 'Your smb.conf contains lots of errors' or 'There are 
multiple mistakes in your smb.conf', but they all mean the same thing.

I will definitely try to be more long winded, if that is what people now 

I never go out of my way to upset anyone and if anyone does feel upset 
over anything I have posted, then I apologise for inadvertently 
upsetting them. If anyone does feel upset about anything I post, then 
please say so, I cannot learn what is and isn't acceptable nowadays, if 
I am not told where I am going wrong.
