Sometimes if we lead by example then other may learn. It's getting bad lately with posters too lazy to even look or search for possible answers.
I have noticed this too, and it is beginning to annoy me.
Sometimes I have posted terse, critical posts here on LQ. This really isn't my style, but when gentle hints are ignored I can, and do, get snappy.
Today I was determined
to continue to be polite and forgiving and do my best to help, despite the LQ posters ignorance, laziness and rudeness.
I did some work and time-consuming research before I posted my reply at #3 (we cross-posted within minutes) in this thread before:
- I posted some relevant links
- I pointed the OP at http://www.google.com/linux
(A gentle hint for a lesson to be learnt?)
You then jumped on me with "Excuse me? ...".
I completely understand the point you are trying to make, we are just going at this from different directions.
For example, see here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...19#post3638119
My "hint" was that this Q would be easily answered by a search engine.
The OP's reply in that thread isn't "Thanks. That helped me fix things up, now I understand a bit better how it all works" but:
"Right...Here's my next not-searched-for question".
So no reply from me to them, ever.
One has to to keep one's resources for those that most deserve or need them.
Feed the hungry? I don't have the money. Teach the hungry to fish? I'll try.
Bypassing the rants (it's sort of to be expected, sometimes) how are you getting on with your nice new piece of linux-compatible NAS storage?
