While there are lots of these around, this one was so good I just had to
post it here.

Their initial post:

>I got the following error messages when I start "sbin/apachecntl start":

I then said "well, is that on a local disk?".

Their response?  Oh, "do I need to put it on a local disk?".

Sigh.  I'm not sure which is worse.  People that don't look for error 
messages or just say "error message" or people who look at them
without reading them.
