Hello. I have had cause to ask some questions in the FreeBSD forum recently. Most of the folk there are that perfect combination of being very clever and very helpful. There is one character there, however, who seems to be so up himself… well you know the sort. His latest dismissive comment was “As a side-note: all of this could have been fully clear to you from studying the FreeBSD handbook; it explains all these basic aspects just for that reason.”. Perhaps that’s true, but the aforementioned FreeBSD handbook is not light reading. It appears to have been written by uber-geeks for uber-geeks. If I glance at it for more than 5 minutes, I get attacks of tldr;!
How can I respond to this person?"
