Alan, tough luck about your email trashing the forum messages. If your system can't identify the forum messages and trashes them, then it is hardly the fault some other user trying to help.
DWG is listing the minimum version for using the Alpha Vantage extensions. We tend to answer the same questions over and over and use short hand. If you want to understand the answer you will have to put a little effort into it rather than expecting other users to do all the work.
DWG gave you the minimum version necessary to use the extension. I can tell you the long story about why but it is probably not in English but technical English. You have given very little information to make it possible to help. Moneydance (MD) version? Operating system (OS)? etc.

Thank you for the note. I am actually quite competent, but one thing I
learned many years ago
in the military aviation world is miss communications and understandings
peoples lives in jeopardy. Granted, this may not be an issue here, but I
also have no intentions
of making accommodations for others who have lesser standards. If asked a
question, I will
provide a thorough and well thought out answer whom the recipient can
appreciate in resolving
Feel free to wait for a thorough and precise answer. When someone volunteers the time for that you will get it. That is the nature of life. To come in and demand that folks change their style or mail systems to fit your preferences is not a good way to get help. Possibly in military aviation you can order folks around. This is somewhat different.
I’ve been watching the previous discussions with interest. I do think your words come across in a confrontation way.
Folk answering your questions here are experienced long term users of MD, who are giving you their time & experience free of charge.
If you are not happy with the answers, I would suggest that you should ask your questions in the section marked “Private Issue”. There MD staff, who are paid to answer your questions, I’m sure will be delighted to help you.
I would imagine that your other question asked here will remain unanswered.
