Can we change temperament?

When I needed help 3 years ago, it was a struggle, and I'm happy a few things have changed.

Helping someone, that person becomes defensive, and I think that's because of the temperament.

When I want to help out, the people I'm trying to help out, seem to have a offense to that.

I didn't start being smart, and these forums was never helpful.

Can we change that a bit?
As a company, your options is limited. However as a community, change the tone a bit. I comment about this because it just reminds me a bit when I first started using proxmox and get no response. The difference I'm asking, people are being a bit too defensive.
I want to help because those people and I using opensource software and you guys commitment hasn't change.
It feels like, the people who ask for help, I understand. All open source software community go through the same problem. But a well oil machine is better. You guys have income, so it's not in the same level as those who do it because they love open source.
