In reverse order:
And I asked him for clarification - but don't let that stop you answering on his behalf.
Oh, I won't, thanks for your concern. If you wanted a private conversation, there's a PM feature on these forums. If you'd like, you can wait to hear him reiterate everything I just said, if that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
I asked him if there was some "other" add-on not just the one he recommended.
I assume if there was "another" add-on to recommend, he would have recommended it initially. You can search google or mircscripts.org for scripts, but I don't see what's wrong with his first recommendation, unless you're avoiding it on principle.
I asked him to clarify what he meant by ME "just HAVING to go that route" when I don't think I mentioned any particular route at all.
The "route" was the recommendation for a replacement script itself, as was implied by his phrasing and given that such a short sentence really can't mean anything else. Using basic English grammar rules we can rewrite his sentence in the form:
A good replacement for autoget is vPowerGet, if you just HAVE to go that route.
