  • This came up at the GSoC mentor's summit earlier in my session on assholes (although I don't think it quite fits the definition), and it seems that it came up again in the FLOSS foundations meet-up at OSCON.

  1. Sometimes I think all the folks that come into #xfce are Help Vampires.

    Then I realize that they’re just users who haven’t read/refuse to read/don’t know about the official documentation and other resources of their distribution.

    There’s a higher percentage of clueless users on #xfce than on any Gentoo channel or forum that I’ve ever seen. A corresponding higher increase in HV false positives. I wonder why that is?

  2. The closer to the naive user you are, the more of them you find. Just to get Gentoo installed takes you a level beyond where many Xfce users are (Xubuntu).
