Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

That shows one of my major peeves when asking for support. You are asking for help with something very specific, and they tell you to use something else entirely. In this case, where they said "just use i3", then "next", and "Another satisfied customer! NEXT!". Extremely rude, IMHO. mad

Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

IRC can be hit or miss -- often miss -- when it comes to getting help. I've gotten assistance on many occasions, and on some, not so much. Forums are far better for getting answers.

Also, I think at least one of the mods here is a mod on the IRC channel (and it's not me), so the mods here who aren't mods on the IRC channel have no authority there, to answer a complaint about distro-bashing. As for here, let's not start it, OK?

Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

The one thing about that chat thread - and I do understand OP posted it for the LULz from Cloudef's lighthearted trolling (presumably also for the LULz) - that gets my goat is the insipid use of "adjective noun is adjective". roll

@ratcheer:  I agree; even here, we occasionally see advice along the lines of "What, having trouble with application X?  Just use application Y."  It's like telling a guy on a bicycle asking for directions to take the freeway.

@lcafiero:  Clearly the chat log posted above was from an Arch IRC, and copy-pasted here for a chuckle; I see no cause for alarm. cool

Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

@jmad2011:  If you had removed references to distros (I knew it was Arch because you stated you "run arch on other part"...well, that and the "infidel" business lol ) you would have removed the joke at the and and had nothing to post. wink

To the forum member who reported this thread as "bashing":  You should be aware that reports to moderators are not anonymous. /AlexMurphy
