Nice. Maybe I'll just use that.
Meanwhile, here's a stab at the other side of things:
How to answer questions:
- Be polite. If someone is rude or out of line, correct them firmly
- Wherever possible, give people info that empowers them, so they can
solve problems on their own.
- If you need more information, ask for it. No need to guess what the
poster is thinking.
- Remember you were once a newbie too.
