We all have a chance to learn from this interchange. As I said in a
previous post, Linux, IMHO, is all about helping one another. A
summary of the thread: question asked (innocent enough but without
enough detail), direct on the money responses, a take your business
elsewhere response (even if that was not what was intended) , and then
a lot of heated interchanges.

It's all a matter of tone. There's a big diffeence (at least for new
users to Linux and CentOS) between: "Go ask your question on another
list - we don't care" and "I think you might try this ... and, by the
way, you might find more help on this topic on the ... list." I would
hope to see more of the latter responses.

Don't feed the assholes, and don't treat anyone who asks an innocent
question like an asshole.
