AlanHorkan, in "RTFM", the profanity is entirely in the eye of the beholder. You can choose to read it in that way, or not, it's entirely up to you. It's not inherent.

Re: the case in point, most of your arguments are moot, since wget is not only completely and accessibly documented in its man page - if shlomif can't use man then answering his question would have done him little good - but also has its internal documentation which is impossible not to stumble over.

Shlomif needs to be helped to help himself. RTFM is by far the most polite way of doing so (see previous entry).

(additional) Actually I mean nothing against shlomif personally. He's a pretty OK guy. And I really like his solution to Perl Regular Quiz 023.
