Hi people! Iím new to the forum and I just wanted to let you know that I thought that this is really great info! I can guess that many people donít know how to ask questions, and that this can certainly help them. If I have a question in the future then Iíll know how to post it And it seems that some people canít just ask questions they canít read answers or posts either Ö

Informative and helpful advice

Very helpful and informative guide to posting. I think to be in a neutral mood when asking questions or replying is very important.

Great article. Hopefully it will do its magic.
Just one small correction: Google's Linux pages no longer seem to exist, at least not as

The Google Linux Portal has indeed been removed. I've updated the article - thanks.

You must be in construction as well as computers.

Basically, we can put all the info in front of people and they will still ignore it.

But thanks for the review
You hit the nail perfectly square on the head . It,s a pity we can,t do the same thing to these Drones that think they are well informed people yet can,t see what,s past the TV screen to witness what,s going on in plain view right in front of their eyes. I am new to Linux but i have been hopeless with Computers from way back i was trying to introduce myself in the intro forum when i saw your comment and i just had to thank you for the smile you made from my grimacing frown. Your info in front of people who ignore it anyway covers so much of the Gen Pop,s problem so simply maybe some of them will be able to understand it if they see it it the right place,s enough time,s. Me wearing it around on a shirt wont be the best image for the slogan but im getting one made up in the morning with a heap of the sad truth,s and painful fact,s all over it with the slogan in a bold, blazing and in your face style that will be hard to miss. Im going to need to watch some Richard Stallman interviews to brush up on some facts and misinformation the zombie,s call life. Travel Safe Xavier

Unhappy very first goes; comment on FEEDBACK

I found it repeatedly frustrating, that perfectly sound advice (not mine ) wasn't acted upon (or the results / failures not reported back). That is particularly annoying if the earlier suggestions are steps in a whole procedure to be tried out for finding a solution and only 15 posts later the original poster grudgingly deigns to test a suggestion already three days old and a lot of effort of other people wasted.

So in my opinion it can't be stressed enough that all suggestions for a remedy deserve a prompt reaction by the owner of the thread, like "I tested xyz and now the error is..." or "It worked okay, thanks".
Simply want to agree with this post, both for the practice/ learn-how and for it's sentiment. It's much like when folks these days end phone calls without saying bye or some other such feedback that they are signing off. Aggrivating, and a bit disconcerting.
