A Plea for sanity when posting to this list.

* when helping people new to linux dont tell them

"just do sudo apt-get install somecrazypackagename"

because they are going to have to come back and ask how to install the next package they need.

tell them how to find a package in synaptic, so they can be self sufficient and so they dont get into the habbit of typing some random command that they are told on the web.

and personally i think top posting is easier, so that you can follow a thread using a threaded mail viewer. other wise when you select the next message you have to scroll through a load of stuff you have already read. if people only left in the relivent parts it would be ok.
