RTFM has a relative. If you get a reply that reads “ STFW ” , the person who sent it thinks you should have Searched The Fucking Web. He or she is almost certainly right. Go search it. (The milder version of this is when you are told “ Google is your friend! ” )
If water spins clockwise when it drains in the northern hemisphere and water spins counterclockwise when it drains in the southern way does it spin at the equator?
Hackers are in some ways a very ruthless meritocracy I'm certain he was right, and that if I had behaved like a sponge I would have been flamed or ignored no matter who I was. His suggestion that I write up the whole incident as instruction to others led directly to the composition of this guide.
"How many people were involved in the fight?"
"Were they kids or adults?"
"What sort of ages were they?"
"About fourteen or fifteen."
"Were any of them wearing anything distinctive?"
"Yes, several of them had red baseball caps on."
"Can you remember if there was a logo on any of the caps?"
"Now you come to mention it, yes, I remember seeing a big letter N."
Hackers are good at spotting homework questions most of us have done them ourselves. Those questions are for you to work out, so that you will learn from the experience. It is OK to ask for hints, but not for entire solutions.
Spell, punctuate, and capitalize correctly. Don't confuse “ its ” with “ it's ” , “ loose ” with “ lose ” , or “ discrete ” with “ discreet ”. Don't TYPE IN ALL CAPS this is read as shouting and considered rude. (All-smalls is only slightly less annoying, as it's difficult to read. Alan Cox can get away with it, but you can't.)
. author Chris Matthews makes the claims in Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero. He unearthed notes written by George St John, the President’s former headmaster at Choate School in Connecticut, which suggest he had been aware of the 'ask not' line for many years.
When you perceive rudeness, try to react calmly. If someone is really acting out, it is very likely a senior person on the list or newsgroup or forum will call him or her on it. If that doesn't happen and you lose your temper, it is likely that the person you lose it at was behaving within the hacker community's norms and you will be considered at fault. This will hurt your chances of getting the information or help you want.
Be courteous. Use “ Please ” and “ Thanks for your attention ” or “ Thanks for your consideration ”. Make it clear you appreciate the time people spend helping you for free.
If you're going to answer the question at all, give good value. Don't suggest kludgy workarounds when somebody is using the wrong tool or approach. Suggest good tools. Reframe the question.
Are you supposed to answer these questions with humor, sarcasm, at all? That depends entirely on your mood. As always keep it light, keep it clean, keep it simple and keep it fun!
