Your first email mentions explicitly the need for help:

Most of the list threads are for people asking for help, and this is 
perfectly normal.
Most of the replies are from volunteers, and this is normal too.
Many have opened threads asking for help on one hand, and on the other 
volunteered their help within this community one way or another.

If you have volunteered any help, no matter how small it is, it is for 
the benefit of the FPC/Lazarus community.

Jonas has replied to your op, and has asked you in a following post to 
report your feedback on his suggestions. He simply is not able to 
continue his diagnostics without this feedback.

Did you try his suggestions? If so, report your findings so that he can 
continue his diagnosis.
