I'm not trying to insult anyone, I'm simply offering my opinion :)

1. The LFS book should be targeted towards medium to advanced
   linux users.
2. The purpose of this book is to educate. Education is
   not worthless, even if the opportunity to learn is ignored
   by the receiving party.
3. I have seen the education level of our "readers" drop during
   the short time I've been here. I believe this is due to
   hand-holding, which is leading to a copy+paste audience whom
   ask for help before attempting to solve a problem for

Those who do not wish to be educated should not be able to
finish the book.
