I've seen many questions where the person asking for help, uses insults as part of their question. As examples, look at these:
- How can I get your (bad word here) software to do what I (bad word here) want?
- You are all (list of bad words here) if you think I'll keep using your (bad word here) software if I can't get this to work!
Is this a good way to get people to help me? For instance, if I threaten to leave Ubuntu if I don't get help immediately; will that make the community realize how important my question is and make them rush to my resque? Or if I insult the software or community, does it make helpers feel that they can save face by providing extra good help extra quickly?
I am asking because so many users choose this tactic.
