Subject Re: [users@httpd] OFF-TOPIC (was Re: [users@httpd] comment on etiquette)

Sorry, we started on Apache, which led to the page on etiquette.  The page
on etiquette used words like, "idiot" and suggested that to be a "winner",
as opposed to an "idiot" users should ask questions that make the techies
think.  But if I'm only at a "newbie" level of Apache how can I make techies
think if every Q is explicitly on topic?  Do you understand what I'm saying?
