Just because someone disagrees with you it doesn't mean they don't
like you nadir. I'm really not "picking" on you and you can keep your
lunch money. You may find that I've restrained from replying to your
posts in the past. However I now believe based on the content and tone
of your posts that whether you realise it or not, you're a natural
I simply disagree with you in this instance, completely, in my honest
opinion you are absolutely wrong. I wouldn't reply if I didn't think
you were going to do a new user some harm. Attempting to coerce a new
user into using your favourite editor is a load of it and then when
they ask a simple question like where to start with shell scripting
and you send them on a mission of discovery digging into the bowels of
proc, get a hold of yourself. You ain't l33t.
