let me introduce you my two rules of reading maillists/forums/blogs. I'm pretty sure that someone came up with them before me but since I'm too lazy to find predecessors I call them "my rules". So
* Don't read threads with more than 20 answers. Seriously. Don't.
* Don't repeat your argument twice. This clearly shows that either you don't understand that people ask you or they don't understand your answers. In both cases you need to jump out of the discussion IMMEDIATELY.
That's all. Unfortunately as a side-effect obeying these rules effectively prohibits you from reading many fedora-devel threads as well as slashdot comments., reddit, etc.
