@rangemaster and @fxshrat - guys please cool down. It really leads to nowhere when we assume bad intentions from one another.
People on the forum, including me, come from various parts of the earth and english is not mother’s tonque of many of us.
We may lack “feeling” of subtleties of the language and native speakers may interpret the tone in other way than intended. Native speakers take english for granted. For many it is not.
That is why answers from non-natives are rather direct and lack “stylistic sugar” and native speakers may interpret it as rude, even though they are not intended to be rude in the eye of the writer.
For better or worse in Internet era english is communication medium and not everyone is Shakespeare. Not everyone is in fact at the level of 10 year old english native speaker. Sometimes people stuggle to take the message across. Imagine yourself writing in foreign language. It is not “automatic” experience.
So please give others a little leeway and please don’t assume bad intentions.
By the way it is pretty common that technical forums come across as “rude”, see the most popular technical forum on the planet StackOverflow:
Some questions sometimes are not perfect too and “trigger” “questionable” responses
We live in the world that is running at supersonic speed and everyones tries to get the job done in quickest possible way and that sometimes mean cutting corners.
So when somebody points out the part of the manual it is not meant as rude. The person who answers does NOT know you and does NOT know what you did and what you did not. Some people already read the manual part pointed to, some did not. There is simply no way for person who is hundreds miles away to know what the other person thinks/did. So please take that into account. If you met personally and drank a bottle of beer or wine you would probably say that “this other guy is quite nice after all”.
Internet is awful communication medium and non-verbal communication is all lost (and that is usually 90% of the entire message), so please keep that in mind and try to be accommodating. I am struggling with all that myself, I am actually quite bad, but well at the moment we have to try at least .
