Please take this in the good spirit in which it's intended.

I can see that you're newish around here, so I'd just like to point out
that whilst your point is technically correct, it wouldn't hurt to
provide a pointer or two.

We do want to teach people how to fish, but we don't want to
put them off fish due to the smell.  If you have nothing useful to
contribute by way of an answer, it might be suggested that posts like
yours are a waste of all of our time, yours included.

It's not as if he asked one of the usual suspects, e.g. what's the
difference between stable and unsstable.  ;)
