As a strictly practical matter: newbies
will always be joining in and asking newbie
questions. There is no way to stop this
short of restricting the distribution or
ability to post. No amount of discussion
will change this.
Other groups post FAQs on a regular basis
to try and address this.
The "newbie" problem is they don't know to look there.
So these questions will continue to re-occur,
and re-occur, and ...
I don't see how it helps to give them a "dope
slap" for not knowing what they don't know.
I have absolutely NO sympathy for anyone who buys a car and then never
picks up the owners manual, going to the Usenet instead.
The owner's manual is chock full of information on your shiny new
$XX,000 toy, whereby the Usenet is chock full of misinformation on every
subject in the world.
But then, the Usenet is easier, so it's obvious to see why people would
go there to see how to operate that shiny new car.
I have no sympathy for anyone who buys a car and never picks up the
owner's manual, period.
What would these people do if they bought a new TV and wanted to know
how it works? Ignore the manual and start blasting out "how do I make
the remote control work my VCR?" all over the net?
I know this subject is a hot potato, but I never assume people have owner's
manuals for a car that is two or more model years old. The car may have been
bought used, and a *lot* of used cars are missing their manuals. A quick
tally tells me that of the twelve cars I've owned over the past 35 years
only four have had owner's manuals with them... and three of those cars were
bought new. In fact, I've had far more service manuals than owner's manuals.
I think previous owners had taken them out of the glove box to make room for
other junk and then lost them.
Personally, I prefer to just give people the benefit of the doubt.
I can see you have a life. all you do is read all the post that don't
pertain to any subjects the matter to you. You couldn't go without one day
without being on this board, Me, I am getting paid while I'm it, and paid
