It's the same old debate: Do you forgive all the
crap and nonsense and
let the list devolve into drivel or to you ride herd on the newbies in
order to instruct them on the way intelligent list interactions are
carried on? I'm in the latter camp.
Oh yes, Randall. By all means let's ride herd on those sniveling little
idiots. Maybe let's divide into two camps: we'll just call yours the camp
of hubris, and maybe the other the camp of assistance.
I used to actively suggest to acquaintances and friends that they try the SUSE
distro, and this list was the primary reason, that they could get
understanding assistance from some knowledgeable people willing to help the
newbie on a very steep learning curve. I do not do that anymore. I still
recommend the distro, not the list. I suggest they read the books but I do
not mention this list, until they become so committed to the distro use that
I feel they will be willing to put up with the derogation and arrogance just
to get some questions answered.
And that is my .02.
