Welcome to your new online community.  It, like all communities has
its own standards of behavior.  See section nine from the 
"RedHat Install List (RHIL) Unofficial User's Guide"

9.    Community Standards

Occasionally folks in the list will ask others to post email in a
certain way, like this guide is doing. Here's why:

This is a quote from Eric Raymond and Rick Moen's paper on "How to ask
for help the smart way":

"Community standards do not maintain themselves: They're maintained by
people actively applying them, visibly, in public. Don't whine that all
criticism should have been conveyed via private mail: That's not how it
works. Nor is it useful to insist you've been personally insulted when
someone comments that one of your claims was wrong, or that his views
differ. Those are loser attitudes." 

The latest version of this paper can be found here:

Linux/Open Source.  Your base belongs to you, free, forever.
Idealism:  "Realism applied over a longer time period"
