I thought the point he made had the potential to be constructive.

When working with inexperienced users, trying to be funny can be very
unhelpful for the OP. Inexperienced users often don't understand what you
mean, even with the smiley. Bottom line, the community is here to help
posters, not to entertain ourselves or each other. It's much more
acceptable to joke with "regulars" after you've been around for a while
and try to give inexperienced users sound, serious, advice.
