Well, I figure since this list had degenerated over the past six
months into little more than etiquette Nazis posting inflammatory
remarks about any minor violation, I'm not losing much. Most of my
questions on this list have gone unanswered - why should this one be
I've found recently I'm getting better help using other avenues. The
people on this list for the most part are knowledgeable, but it is
very frustrating trying to sift through the mountains of dogma being
posted here about what one should and should not post. It is obvious
that the Gestapo has taken over.
Long derisive posts about etiquette have no business here or in any
forum, except in a FAQ. If you want to point someone to a FAQ, feel
free. It would also be much more acceptable if you answer the question
being posed, then politely point to the FAQ.
I'm a relative newbie to forum posting, having only started in the
late '80s, but I've seen enough good mailing lists and sites to know
when a post is warranted or not. Your previous post was completely off
the mark and not needed. I was obviously making a reference to the
pathetic nature of those here who choose to dictate manners rather
than simply help. I half expected someone to post an answer such as
you did, and am glad I got the chance to write this. If you - or
others on this list don't feel that you should act as adults and
answer questions, then fine. I'll continue to do my best to promote
Linux and SUSE by providing informative answers to questions.
