in reply to Special place for RTFM posts

Reading the original post for this anonymous monks reply and your response to the question, I have to agree with the Anonymous Monk, he needed to read the manual.

In fact, I think you were giving bad advice implying that the web-server even had a cgi-bin directory, which not all web servers have. It also did not address the question of what happens when a server, like Apache, no longer has a cgi-bin because someone removes it.

While, I don't want to generate a hostile environment for questions, It is usually the post that causes the RTFM responses rather than the poster. I fail to see the benefit of down voting a RTFM poster because of someone else not putting in any effort.

    Agree. And reaping works fine for truly abusive posts.
