Subject RE: STILL need help w. Tomcat installation!!

Steve,

excuse me, but what game are you playing exactly? I have been following your
posts and the answers to them for a while now, and although people are
generally very willing to help you, you are continuing to upset them. Why?

John Turner already suggested that you are making some queer kind of "joke",
and I'm starting to think he's right. Maybe you should start to post
something useful or stop posting at all. And I would strongly suggest to
read http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html as is suggested in
the jakarta project's mailing list guidelines (which you should perhaps read
first: http://jakarta.apache.org/site/mail.html). Otherwise (I think) the
following things will happen in short order:

1. You will get more flames.
2. A lot of people on this list will filter your posts.
3. You will be banned from the list altogether.

But who am I to worry about that?

Andreas Mohrig

  Hello Micael, I appreciate the "useful" [-sic]advice which you offered to
me re. setting the system variables for the Tomcat installation, however I
really don't appreciate at all you inferring that I am DELIBERATELY trying
to make it harder for both you and everyone else to help me just because I
INADVERTENTLY left out the info. on what my platform is!
