Well, in case anyone hadn't noticed, that link is in there under It also doesn't really address the particular issue here, of asking about every little detail until people are way annoyed.

While I'm looking at it, I see the section On Not Reacting Like A Loser seems to have gone unnoticed by moderators in some places, and is relevant to this thread drift (or hijack as the case may be):

"There have been hacker forums where, out of some misguided sense of hyper-courtesy, participants are banned from posting any fault-finding with another's posts, and told “Don't say anything if you're unwilling to help the user.” The resulting departure of clueful participants to elsewhere causes them to descend into meaningless babble and become useless as technical forums."

Can't really say oracle-l and are useless, but some effect has been seen.


-- is bogus.
Egad, my CS4 (my old C$serve email, not some flashy graphic design
thingie) connection is going away.  VMS must have finally died.  Guess
I'll finally have to consolidate on a modern client.  Anyone have any
suggestions for something that won't change over the next couple of
decades?   Too bad about all those people who spent a dozen years
building up their search engine ranking on ourworld, eh?
