Yes, it does, it's one of the more useful ones we have.  It lets
someone know in no uncertain terms they will have to do what we do if
they want to have what we have.  The above exchange usually precedes
the #LFS visitor stating that they *didn't* follow the book exactly,
which may or may not work, as you know.

Well, I've read many things you've written here on the mailing lists,
Steve, and I value your opinion.  But not as much as I value my time
spent in #LFS answering questions.  Frankly, I hear "Thank You" a lot
more than "You're rude", so unless the irc channel operators instruct
me otherwise, I won't be treating anyone any differently than I do
