You SO need to get over yourself.
Being a Macintosh administrator does not and never has meant being less than
any other OS admin. We do the SAME tasks, consider the same situations. Your
Unix experience is great for you, but the pricetag for your advice is your
constant poo-pooing. Its so annoying.
You constantly show your disdain for people who fall outside your narrow
scope of the definistion of sysadmin. Exerienced and trained Macintosh
Administrators are only part of the group that comprises Apple's user base
put into the role of "admin". If a teacher who runs a Mac lab needs help
with her iMac server and doesn't have time to read the history of BSD, well,
guess what. That's why she is asking for help. The mac community exists, it
is not all hard headed grizzled unix admins with knowledge of the OS to
match their beard length, it is what it is. And I think its time for you to
spend a moment considering this and asking yourself if you can just accept
that and move on. Begin dispensing your sage Unix advice and helpful
comments with more than pithy barbs and yor ubiquitous "RTFM".
old skool mac admin, system 7 lover, red sox fan.

Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
