  Asking people to read the debug log, as suggested in the FAQ, README,
INSTALL, "man" page, every single "howto", and daily on this list?

  For shame.

  It's really quite simple.  It's a choice.  People DON'T read the
documentation.  They DON'T follow instructions.  They DON'T read the
debug log.  But they get incensed when they get told to read it, and
they get incensed when told to follow instructions.

  Happily, there is a solution.  Along with Christopher, you're now the
new "cut & paste" master.  Please spend a few short hours every day
answering questions on this list by cutting & pasting answers from the
existing documentation.

  Also, you will need to explain to people that they should run the
server in debugging mode.  Feel free to *continue* explaining why this
is necessary after they have gotten angry at you for not immediately
solving their problem.

  Complaining about *my* behavior is not an option until you've
contributed something to the project.
