while sometimes it is what i want (when someone just attack me or just 
repeating nonsense), generally you exaggerate.

Mostly i do if you read my answers. And i always try to help all people.

Classic example is some kind of windows user (or maybe linux distro) that 
wants "easy system" and "desktop software".

Telling him/her that it's better stick with windows is actually saving 
his/her time.

There are no cases that such people will switch. i know HUNDREDS of people 
like this, everybody got back to windows.

And i help FreeBSD too this way. Do you like more and more opinions like 

"I completely don't understand that hype about linux/FreeBSD. It's even 
more inconsistent, slow and make more problems that windows."

I hear them often, and i understand them.

You see wrong. Probably because of few people that behave like having 
mental problems, and just criticizing ANYTHING i write.
Any attempt to discuss only make it worse.

Don't you think that it would be better AS YOU SAID - concentrate on 
topic, and not on your opinions about myself?

While few may be true, most are just the result of too quick reading and 
are too much based of this few people i mentioned.

Actually THEY starts "flamewar" because they don't use argument.

And - no - i WILL NOT be telling what you or other want from me, but my 
opinions. There is no way to change it no matter how "politically 
incorrect" it is.

I think it finally end in starting moderated maillist, because it's fine 
time to do so.
