Typical conversation on the Internet.
I’m having this situation, I’m trying to do blah using blah and it doesn’t work for me because blah. How do I proceed?
Invariably, one of the answers is
Just use X
And to that I would like to answer right now:
Go fuck yourself!
Your answer shows lack of thought and arrogance. In addition, chances are that X is a blogosphere-hyped tool or product. Here are some suggestions for next time, instead of “Just use X”:
- Is there a reason you are not using X? I had similar situation, tried to achieve what you are trying to achieve and had positive experience.
- I haven’t tried myself, but I heard about X which I think should solve your problem, you should probably take a look if you haven’t yet.
Hope this helps both sides of the discussion.
