I've ofen seen "tough love" dispensed in some forums where inventors ask practitioners for advice.  Some of it is not just terse.  IMO it's also downroad rude and insulting.
Mr. Auslander is nowhere near that extreme, but some of the people who deal out that rude advice swear that novices just won't exit their dreamworld when they are talked to nice.  
I don't believe in that kind of tough love although on occasion I do envy Mr. Auslander's ability to express himself concisely.    
Sometimes from the question it seems clear a poster is going to take the given answer and shoot off his own foot.  I'm not sure that we do the person any favors when we postulate a bunch of facts and give an answer.   On occasion when I've given answers, I've appreciated seeing someone else follow up by telling the OP to get some professional help.

Perhaps the best policy is to contact a potential client off-list.
Keep the forums clean (with straightcut advice), and explain your services in a more directed format.
This is but one possibility.
