Let me respond to you.
All of those are fine but it’s wrong to pretend to be a beginner, let people aim at that level and then begin to scrutinise. Whether you are/were/will be a Deobandi or Hanafi or Salafi it doesn’t matter, what matters is honesty.
When you post on a forum, people don’t know you or your background and neither do they get Wahi about the fact that you were on Sunniforum. They READ and RESPOND. The first phase of acquiring knowledge is to learn to phrase your question properly. You could have given your background and also stated that you know a few things and are looking for opinions; fair enough.
Sayyidina Umar (RA) used to BEAT some people up to correct their mistakes, would you assert that he was contradicting the Sunnah?
All I am saying is that state the question properly, don’t say you are a beginner and then in the very next post start analysying and judging the opinions of Ulama!
Lastly, if you already know who to listen to and where to look (for knowledge) why are you asking?
I don't know what this even means but I have certainly NOT said anything like whatever is being said here at all!
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
