Mentor. Don't Discourage.
I wish that everytime I looked at one of these threads I wouldn't see a senior member discouraging BT users to go learn on another flavor of linux before messing with BT. Learning is learning. It doesn't really matter where you learn it. I would also venture to say that these very people who hold the knowledge were helped along by someone in the beginning, otherwise they wouldn't be in the position they're in now. Save the handfed argument because everyone was handfed at some point in this game. :)
