I agree that polite and friendly is the goal.

I see that a polite way was tried already by several people.

When people ask for help, but then avoid being helped, it's dubious
behaviour. In forum like this, such situations occur from time to

Sometimes a means of self-protection is required, especially for
people who expend effort help to others without reward.

There will always be people who don't communicate well, or those who
will take what suits them, perhaps repeatedly, but will never give
back anything, except perhaps negativity.

That's to be expected. But the worst effect of community-parasites
(trolls, help vampires, etc) is when they trigger conflict amongst the
active, contributing, valuable members of the communities that they
feed off.

Let's have sufficient awareness to avoid that here. I don't like to
see bickering or denigration of anyone here, but especially regular
contributors with expertise.

The people who do give back.

And especially when questions are not even about Debian-project

I've written a few shitty messages to this list too, when people don't
meet my expectations of behaviour. But usually when I'm finished,
I press "delete" instead of "send", and then find something fun to
do instead :)

To everyone who contributes here ... thank you for your work!
