@AlienBob: Cut the poor man (or woman - one never knows) some Slack. He/she obviously wants to reach the magic number of 3000 posts.

119 to go.

That said, I already know several posts are coming to support you and spoil the thread.
Yeah - and you asked for it. But it's not actually your fault.

It's because on LQ the number of posts determines your "title", AFAICT.

But unfortunately this does not reflect the actual knowledge/wisdom/experience of the particular user.

It's perfectly fine to ask questions (there are no stupid questions), but then your "title" should not say "senior member". Because most people associate a certain level of knowledge/wisdom/experience with such a "title".

Every time I see posts by "stf92", this comes to my mind. I just never actually wrote about it. Until now.

You should get out more. There most certainly are stupid questions.

That post makes me wonder, which one of us needs to get out more.

@MadMaverick9:

I won't waste time answering you. That would dignify your post, which is sheer ... Plus, you don't do any favor to Slackware, making its followers look as fanatics. Further, I'd like to know the kind of knowledge you seem so proud of.

Your answer shows that you don't understand what I wrote.

It's a beautiful Saturday morning, John.
What the hell else do we gotta do?
So let me try again, since I got nothing else better to do today.

I wrote that most people associate a certain level of expertise with a senior member.

Your questions are many a times questions that a newbie/medium level would ask, and there is nothing wrong with that. You understand that? Keep asking.

Just that the title that LQ gives you, does not seem to reflect your level of expertise.

I fail to see what is so fanatic about this. I am really more complaining about LQ than anything else.

And - who wrote anything about being proud of something? Not me. Please do not put words into my mouth.

And to get a little more specific now - one could for example determine a level of expertise as:
Code:
Reputation / Number of Posts

@MadMaverick9: I'm not sure what your issue with stf92 is but I see no need to hijack this thread to complain about the labels and reputation system. If you want to do that, perhaps you should post your thoughts and feedback in a more appropriate forum.

I'm honored that you bothered to look up something that I posted to prove a point.

It's probably not the point that you thought you were making.

I see no reason to bash OP like people are doing. Isn't this place mesnt to be a friendly place to learn? Sure, you can call him out and ask him to read more but I don't think he deserves to be bashed.

I agree.

Please keep it respectful people, and please keep this thread on topic from now on.
