This is a mailing list for discussion of things that are *helpful* to NGINX users.  People that subscribe to this mailing list come from a variety of educational backgrounds and experiences and all learn differently.  This means that things which may not be helpful to you may well be helpful to others.  This said, even when we disagree, it is paramount that we are respectful and gracious given that email lacks any sort of tone except the words we chose.

One of the things which is amazing about this community is that there is such depth and diversity of experience that can be shared.  Please continue to be awesome to one another remember that many other may be helped even when something seems irrelevant to you. 

Now, in the spirit of respecting each other’s contributions and time, let’s move on to more constructive topics and if there’s individual feedback on how people contribute or communicate, let’s keep it direct to the people involved and constructive rather than argumentative.

Your referring to Valery as "anonymous" is more than a bit ironic, since you choose to go by initials that may or may not be real and he, like most of us, isn't afraid to use his real name. Pot, kettle, black. Put them in a sentence for me. If you don't understand English idiom that's fine. Google it.
