RE[7]: panic when install FreeBSD

Member since:

Are you really shure of what you are talking about? You are using broad generalisations, like there was some homogenous group of "FreeBSD guys" to wich you can attribute whatever kind of behavoiur you seem fit.

Of course that is not so.

If you use FreeBSD and want to interact with members of the community (whatever that may be), you have to realize that you are expected to do some work on your own. You are expected to google for hints, check the FreeBSD handbook and FAQ:s and so on, before asking questions.

I think that if you really took your time to follow some of the mailinglists you would find that there is in general a friendly and cooperative attitude, even towards newbies, as long as they show that they are willing to do their part of the job - that is: to learn and contribute.

Shure, there *are* some arrogant assholes. Personally I think that the world would be a little better without them. On the other hand: each community has its part of assholes. One of the reasons that I like FreeBSD is that there are relatively few assholes around (compared to some other communities).

Having read these threads, I find it hard to see what it is that have upset you so much. I cant recall anything that make me think of "arrogant assholes". Not even your post that I'm replying to.

You seem to have a pretty thin skin. Take care.
