That's cold, man. I thought these forums were for people to come to when they're looking for help. To call anybody's questions stupid or silly is cold and condescending and almost smacks of a sort of elitism or snobbishness that I would not have expected in a Linux forum. How would you feel if you were new to this and someone referred to your questions as "stupid" or "silly"?

It's a very good tutorial, but you could have just said "new people" and let it go at that.

When I was new to linux before asking questions I considered Frequent / Common I researched and looked for things that would answer my questions before just bypassing the tons of tools and resources on the internet that would have answered them for me without being lazy.



As for me being snobby.. naw.. actually I am quite humble..

So ignoring someone's pleas for help is a better idea? That smacks of elitism just as much as name-calling, if you ask me.
