Thanks for all the fish!

Thanks Jeremy for keeping this site alive and growing. I find it a valuable resource and have never once seen anyone being rude to anyone else. I guess I have a thick skin, if someone were to be rude, one monkey don't stop the show. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the site. My suggestion is to have at least one additional prefix such as 'ABANDONED' or 'ORPHANED' -- there are often posts marked 'SOLVED' where the OP fixed the issue and never reported the details, abandoned the effort completely, chose a different route, or the thread simply devolved in chaos. Adding search prefixes that accurately reflect the outcome of aging posts would make research easier and flag topics that deserve further attention.

Pros: It seems that even with obscure things, there's normally someone who will provide an answer or at least point you in the right direction.

Cons: Still a bit of arrogance in the posts at times. Pride is a very ugly trait.
It would be good to also teach more. Don't just say "do this" and end the post. Explain how and why something is done. This way we can keep growing. If the person you're helping doesn't really care, that's okay, someone else coming up later might find it very useful.
As a new user, i absolutely agree. i already know how to fish, but i need to know why the
fish are not biting, where they are hiding, what other bait might i be using. If i'm going
to tangle with an OS, then i need to know how it thinks. It follows rules of logic and reason and so do i. To just tell folks to type in this command and it s-h-o-u-l-d work. But what if it
doesn't work? What is that cmd attempting to do? You got the idea.
I'll do my best to at least describe the problem and issues involved in a clear and concise way.
Thank you all for providing a platform which might help me to stay out of a rubber room.
I hear that the food is not to good either.

Rather than flaming people who are asking for it I try to use what I call Canadian politeness. (I am not Canadian but I lived in Canada for 17 years.) Many Canadians have a very effective way to rebut an emotional rant. They become super calm and super polite. They reply to the ranter's statements with calm logical statements which have no emotional content. Canadian politeness is extremely effective and it is fun to calmly tie the ranter into logical knots.
