Bottom line, the forums are an interactive venue where users of different opinions/background/experience can come together and share helpful advice. TB0ne is convinced his advice is helpful and isn't going to back down from sharing it at every opportunity. If you want a non-interactive venue where you don't have to listen to differing opinions, get a blog.

And I am convinced that his advice is off topic and distracting from the actual question asked, and am, in this interactive venue, sharing my opinion as a counter point to his.

As is your right. Did you, however, happen to notice this thread was resolved back in May? You are bumping a 3-month-dead thread solely to point out a perceived breach of netiquette... irony much?

Actually, I bumped it to thank the OP for posting the link.

And yeah, I noticed, but since this was the first Google result for the topic, it seemed like a good idea to make sure that anyone reading the thread in the future would know that his solution was a workable one, since the only other input in the thread was entirely negative.

Edit: This had nothing to do with netiquette. It's about the RHEL ecosystem, and how sometimes it's not as black and white as some believe.

And with all that said ... can you guys all please keep on topic now, and maybe migrate the meta-discussion if
you REALLY feel the urge to carry it on to GENERAL?


Thanks.
