Harsh? I don't see anybody being harsh towards you. I see a friendly jab about your wording one one thing but nothing harsh making fun of you for asking questions. I wouldn't start off your stay by getting irritated with simple remarks such as those. It will get much worse if you do. (Not a threat just have seen it a few times).
There are plenty of threads like the one max capacity posted that will help you along the way.
