I wanted to start a brief discussion about these kinds of answers to questions. I've been seeing this quite a bit lately. I don't know if it's just one person, of if multiple folks have picked up on it. <opinion> This is not an answer to the question. It does not answer the question and does not contribute to the OPs knowledge of FreeBSD, nor does it contribute to the list archives. It's also a violation of the rule against "me too" answers as laid out in "How to Get the Best Results from FreeBSD-Questions". It doesn't even serve to educate the OP on how to ask better questins. First off, there are actually two questions hidden in the post: "Can FreeBSD act as a WTS?", and "can FreeBSD provide the same services as WTS?" Is "yes" your answer to both of them? Because, if it is, I'd like to know which software allows it to function as a WTS, since my searches have not found any such software. This leads to the implied question of "what software provides the capability" which (despite not being voice, directly) is pretty obvious. You've totally ignored that question. You could say that "technically, he didn't ask" but it boils down to just being rude. </opinion> I'm curious as to whether this is only my opinion, or if others feel the same way. I don't think answers like this reflect well on FreeBSD or the FreeBSD community. Short answers like "see 'man foo'" are appropriate, as they impart some knowledge and tell the OP that his question is answered in the indicated documentation, but this doesn't follow that template. I do feel that, althought Grog's document doesn't specifically chastise these types of answers, that they are _not_ in the "spirit" of that document, and do not serve the purpose of this mailing list. -- Bill Moran Potential Technologies http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
