Just a thought, here:
This is insulting. Furthermore, on a list with a high hacker population,
it's quite likely that we have a number of people who won't understand why.
IF YOU KNOW THE ANSWER, JUST SAY IT.
As someone who is utterly mystified by human interactions much of the time,
let me point out that there is little in this world so frustrating as someone
who apparently knows the rules going out of his way to NOT ONLY point out
that he understands, and NOT ONLY insult me for not understanding... But then
go ahead and refuse to explain.
It looks more like an attempt to retain some kind of monopoly on effective
social interactions than anything else. If you have some knowledge other
people don't, SHARE IT.
