I don't expect people to "know-it-all," but since you started "contributing"
to this MAILING LIST I've told you at least twice that it's a MAILING LIST
not a newsgroup.

Suggestion... when you don't know something, Google it. In the past few
messages you've sent you've asserted your ignorance on a number of points.
Go to google, put FFS in and you get the definition back as the FIRST
result. Even if it wasn't the first result I would hope it's safe to assume
you'd know I didn't mean Facial Feminization Surgery or Finnish Fur Sales!

Ignorance is natural and expected, but the inability or unwillingness to put
effort into reducing your ignorance is a sickening waste of one of the most
powerful computers on the planet!

On second thought - I don't need your forgiveness.  Perhaps you should

I don't think you're a moron, and I'll leave deciding why you referred to
yourself as such as an exercise for the reader. I do think you need to pay a
bit more attention, and occasionally respect, to the responses you get on
this mailing list if you want to realise the potential value they carry.

I'm not sure why you think I do, but I have no problem with the emails I get
as a result of subscribing to this mailing list - in fact I find them
invaluable. I've found the list invaluable whenever I've had a problem I
can't solve myself, and I find it invaluable to contribute where and when I
can. I occasionally find it extremely frustrating, but as the veteran list
members will hopefully testify my responses have mellowed somewhat with age.
