If we do not help the newbies how will they ever become clued. I can certainly remember when I did not know a bit from a byte.

Oh and btw I'll take 5 of those STM64's on special...

Is this for real?

 Someone asks a harmless question about setting up multiple default
 routes, not about Barack Obama or whether the moon is made of green
 cheese, but about default routes.

Then 10 people decide to respond that this isn't appropriate for nanog.

Then 25 people decide to dispute that.

 Then 50 people are arguing (ok maybe I exaggerate but just a little)
 about it.

So the person who asked the original question feels bad and apologizes.

And 5 people decide to tell her there's nothing to apologize for.

 And 10 people dispute that...and...what next? Oh, right, and next I
 feel an urge to write this idiotic meta-meta-meta-note.

 I think psychologists have a term for this, "chaotic instability
 disorder" or something like that.

Maybe what we need are NANOG GREETERS!

Hello, welcome to Nanog, can we help you find something? Hello,
welcome to Nanog, can we help you find something?...

Blue light special in slot 5? V6 only STM64's now half price!

I dont think that there's any issue at all to be honest. NANOG isn't
just for the clued.
