I agree with everything that you stated. Especially the above quote. I know that you don't agree with my thoughts on how some people achieve knowledge but surely most people agree that individuals obtain knowledge in different ways. Some people learn best if given the answer and then reverse engineer the answer back to formulate a better question in the future. Given the answer "cat /proc/cpuinfo" lead me to discover what cat is and what is contained within /proc/. Just because I was given an answer doesn't mean it will not lead me to find more answers in the future. That's how I have always done it. I'm sure that you took a different path and obviously have become intelligent taking that path.

Sometimes at an elemental level mimicry is the only way to eventually achieve knowledge. We learned to speak through mimicking our elders. We learned to write by mimicking our teachers when they wrote. I felt that the question was elemental in nature being posted in a Newbie thread thus I gave a concise, 6x6=36 , answer. I'm sorry if I stepped on toes. But at an elementary level if a question is asked a simple, clear, and concise answer is warranted. Just my opinion. Feel free to disagree.

and not what I think should be....
People should only ask complex questions, this question is too simple and simply must be that the individual was too lazy to find the answer to the question. I had to figure this stuff out by myself so should this individual. He isn't going to learn anything if I simply just give him the answer.
Just to clarify the above is not what I believe is but was me imagining what some believe should be. Sorry for the ambiguity.

That's what is nice about LQ. You can have an intelligent exchange that will benefit everyone. Your not stepping on any toes as far as I'm concerned. My tone of writing is the same, I try not to be as harsh but S*it happens.

That is if mimicry is followed through with investigation thus leading to new elements that should provide additional understanding from the experience.
