I somehow thought I usually was nice and helpful, however upon reading Marc's e-mail about trying to make exim4 a little bit more foolproof, I realized I was not.
My gut reaction to the problem (people failing to check the docs at all) was a simple "So what? Either they'll learn the minimal basics (Docs on Debian are in /usr/share/doc and reading them can be helpful.) or Debian is not for them. I sure won't be jumping through hoops for them."
Lesson learned: I am just an elitist <insert favorite 4-letter word>.
