asking him to explain is probably 'ok'.
(yes, he could have put more details into his mail, yes it would
been more helpful and quicker to an answer for him...)

Whatever else you might think of Eric S Raymond, the URL I cited is still
the best summary I've seen, and probably the most help we can give Deric
in under 64 bytes. Because let's face it, no matter *what* Deric's native
language is, he's not going to get anything useful from NANOG or any other
mailing list till he either reads Eric's FAQ, or otherwise learns the
info in there.

Credit where due: "Smart Questions" was co-authored by Rick Moen, who
apparently *couldn't* escape.  (Pat yourself on the back if you got the
reference, esoteric as it was.)

And yes, that and Tatham are my two go-to references for people.
