'lurker mode off'

Comment from a 'lurker'

You developers and all do a fine job with this.

*But* you all seem to have the same wrong idea about *most* regular
Linux users. At least the ones that I see on the help lists.

*Almost none of them read that darn DOCs.* Nor do they read the release
Notes. Nor do they read the FAQ's. Nor do they read they Known Problems.

Really? They don't read the instructions and hints *before* they destroy
their working systems with an update? Or with a release upgrade?

Really? Not the Newbies? Not the 'I think that I am an Expert' people?
Not the 'I have much Linux experience' people? Really? Sure. Just follow
the questions asked when something well written about pops up as a
*surprise*.  <sigh>

Sorry for the noise.

Back to 'lurker' mode'.
