whenever i see someone ask a question about computers that i feel is obvious, rather than saying READ THE MANUAL DO IT YOURSELF or HOW COULD YOU BE THIS UNINTELLIGENT i just explain how to do the thing, thus giving people a good experience with the community instead of making people associate linux users with smug, condescending, self-righteous asses

@lynnesbian my favorite thing to do back when i actually did things in tech was to answer questions from people that liked replying RTFM with a massive wall of text explanation ending with "btw, i don't know anything about linux and i figured this out, some expert you are"

this is how i was banned, at an early age, from basically every hardcore linux forum and irc channel

@scarly @lynnesbian you're doing the gods' work.

ALSO Y'ALL WE SHOULD MAKE A QUEER UNIX IRC SERVER AND FORUM :crt_w_prompt: :cool_rainbow:

@scarly @lynnesbian *furiously looks up how to set up an irc server*
