Ah Usenet. I remember it well.
I went to the group for a particular api not that long ago and asked: "Does anyone here use xyz on Windows?".
The group owner moderator replied: "Don't ask to ask, just ask!".
I replied: "But I didn't ask to ask; I asked the question I wanted to know the answer to. If no one here uses xyz on Windows, then there is little point in my considering doing so because a) it is unlikely to work; b) I'm not going to be able to get any help getting started".
He banned me. For arguing.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
