They're big enough that -- as you'll have seen for yourself -- they can
cause needless confusion and waste of time when the questioner fails to
mention that it's all happening on FreeBSD, as opposed to the default
reasonable expectation that questions on a LUG list concern Linux.
Thus the suggestion that the obvious screw-up entailed not recur.
