A recent comments thread posted on Linux news site is an excellent real-world example of more Linux snobbery.
The original poster, fatih, asked a legitimate question. Someone calling themselves Courage responded with, “STFW” (search the f***ing Web).
This type of response makes Linux users look rude, crude, and uncaring. Courage’s reply was extremely inappropriate and wholly unnecessary. Fortunately, another poster called mexsudo rectified the situation by posting a link to the information fatih very politely requested.
