I know this is an old discussion, but I have a new example.

At OLF Ben was helping this guy install F13 on this old laptop, so while
it was installing he set up a vm on his macbook and was playing around
with it. As we got to talking I mentioned that he could get help on IRC
and he wanted some help setting that up. Here is where the problem

I was showing him how to do IRC with irssi, its the only client I really
know how to use well enough to show anyone (I tried xchat but couldnt
remember where everything was) and I think this was just way too much
for him. He was following along perfectly until we had to start the nick

I don't know if this story is going to change any policy or anyone's
mind on the matter, but I really wish we would change this policy to
make it easier on new (even brand new) users and on ambassadors.

just my $0.02USD
