I read your response and while I agree somewhat with your views I beg
to differ in many of your other views. What's the basic purpose of
this listserv is ?
The purpose isn't spoon feeding, question guessing and improving time to
delete emails for sure.
In my opinion it is to help folks who can't solve a particular problem
and need some guidance.
The only time you are right in this e-mail. These folks can't get help
sooner because somebody asks silly questions.
yeah, right. you are really insightful. You are a few thousand miles
away and yet you found out why I send these mean e-mails. I think that's
why they call you mr FixIt. It's like you know me inside out. Brrrr.
Of course stupid people like me would call it "Progress through
Criticism" but there is a reason why people like you exist and that is
to include us in their patterns.
Just because their communication
skills are not as good as yours it doesn't mean you can take whole
day's worth of your own grouchiness
And what might those be? What is the e-mail address of an e-mail? While
at it let's call my grandma and let her share with you a few cooking
recipes. You with your infinite consideration and respect could find out
when to mix hashed pork meat with rice spaghetti and what the final
product might be called.
on the poor person. Not everyone
in the world speak English but they still can have valid questions and
Maybe you know more than everyone else on this listserv
I'm sure I don't.
but if you wanted you could have used that knowledge and immediately
The question had two possible answers. I pinpointed them in my first
reply. If you would have bothered to check that mail (not to say that
you didn't read carefully my last post) you'd find out what might those be.
what was the question all about?
But instead you chose to challenge the question. Maybe with
knowledge/authority there is some arrogance associated
No there isn't. The only things associated with my knowledge/authority
are poor outside MAN bandwidth, big internet connection bill (thing that
you probably don't pay) and black pouches under my eyes that got there
by searching google to document my questions and reading those documents
before asking stupid things.
And if we are at the psychology part maybe you will allow me to share
with you the fact that you feel so wronged about my e-mail probably
because you associated with it some identical habits of your own?
Laziness, not willing to read and instead wanting an solution from
somebody else, never willing to assume responsibilities? The perfect
description for the manager...
Anyway this is my last reply on this thread. If you can't understand
that we are wasting a lot of bandwidth and resources - and this is
probably because your mama didn't bought redhat's servers - I can't
really do anything more for you in this matter.
And one more thing about the waste: do you know how many sites are
mirroring redhat's archive? Find that out and multiply 10MB with that
P.S. and please let the psychology and philosophy to someone who

If you were really concerned about this you would have sent me a
private message. I do from time to time. You can even ask for my YM
id if you want to hate me in real-time. But this obliges me to make a
public point of view.
No it's not because it will make a future economy of bandwidth when
this guy and others will think twice before asking a dumb question
like that one.
You on the other hand, unfortunately, do not see this from a
realistic point of view. Consider the fact that such an e-mail needs
a reply to ask for a better description of the problem. That reply
will be replied by another e-mail containing more or less pertinent
info on the matter. Maybe someone thinks of a specific problem, sends
a reply to the first mail and receives one about not resolving the
real problem. We have now how many e-mails that didn't really solved
the problem? I'll tell you: five. say the medium size of the e-mails
is 2KB. Multiply with 5 e-mails and with 1000 subscribers and you'll
have a 10MB useless communication. Waste enough for you?
here, but isn't a pissy response like this
also a waste of bandwidth?
No. I told you, he's lazy. Or he sucks at communication skills.
Either way redhat-list is not guilty for this. If you are his
advocate then tell me what he meant when he said "IP address of every
email" and why you are 100% he meant it. Responses below 100% degree
of certitude are not taken in account because this incertitude will
generate mail replies with at least twice the size.
Come on, maybe the guy's new?
Then you should uninstall them. I am not complaining about the whole
e-mail IP thing but about the fact that an e-mail's envelope contains
many info that could be probed for an IP address. Therefore the
mention about the mind reading. Maybe you have a crystal ball but I
broke mine while trying to unleash the hidden powers of micro$oft
wi(n)dow$. The damn thing resigned and imploded. Said it was
overworked and overqualified for the job.
Shit, I have
reporting tools that tell me the originating IP's of certain things
(e.g. malformed messages or control commands), and I have no idea how
they got them.
For others that have itchy hands/fingers: Yes, this e-mail *is*
contained in the waste of bandwidth type of communication. :) . The
only excuse is that I had to stand up and defend my point of view.
10q for your patience.

Another mail that I consider waste of bandwidth just because someone is
lazy enough to think that we are mind readers...
emails don't have ip addresses. tcp/ip packets do. maybe you' like to
tell us exactly what you want to find out.
sender's domain mx? originating smtp server?
