Really? I didn't know: never been on /.
Thanks for sharing this invaluable experience, your comment was most useful.
Also, I do hope the 'F' in TFA meant 'featured', because over here at LWN people usually tend to be polite to each other.
But I do realise that, although this did not use to be too much the case on LWN, people like to tell others off and punish them, rather than trying to understand them. I can see that on the road to work every day.
