whenever i see someone ask a question about computers that i feel is obvious, rather than saying READ THE MANUAL DO IT YOURSELF or HOW COULD YOU BE THIS UNINTELLIGENT i just explain how to do the thing, thus giving people a good experience with the community instead of making people associate linux users with smug, condescending, self-righteous asses

@lynnesbian I cannot tell you how many times I have googled how to do something and the first result is a stack overflow page where the only response is to google how to do it.

@LucasTheDrgn @lynnesbian such answers are against the site rules and if you come across one you should do the internet a favor and flag it “not an answer.” That doesn’t help to answer the question but it at least reduces the level of shittery online a little bit.

hmm that might be not helpfull for this specific situation, but while everything is pointing to use #google I can advice to follow @FuckOffGoogle and use for your searchs# duckduckgo and #searx.
They are at least not designed to spy on us, harvest our data, analyse it, marketize it...
