The question is what's considered rude. What's not rude on
debian-devel might be considered rude in other fora and vice versa.
Read The Fine Manual (with a reference to what manual, unless it's
self-evident) is not something I consider rude on debian-devel, while
I would find it rude if I got that answer from a helpdesk I called and
whose job was to help me.
