All Those Lovely "Easy Questions"

Posted 12-26-2005 at 07:11 PM by XavierP

I'd like to publicly say "stop doing this". It's very very annoying.

I see on LQ numerous threads like this: "compiling a kernel - easy question", "simple question about installing xine" and similar threads.

If it's so easy or simple to do these things, why on earth would you need to post a thread about it? Just go and do it.

We are not flattered because you think it will be easy for us to answer your question, nor will it make us want to answer it more quickly.

A thread title just needs to consist of a short description of your problem: "how do I compile a kernel for Slackware" or whatever.
