Is it really necessary to take this arrogant and abusive tone?

If you are trying to convince others of your position, I fear the only  
thing you're convincing me of is your close-mindedness and utter  
unwillingness to consider different ways of thinking, and I'm afraid I  
tend to write off everything such people say.

If you don't really care about convincing others of your position, why  
not just sit on your hands and let us "clueless newbies" (at least one  
of whom has been doing UNIX sysadmin and SMTP and TCP/IP programming  
for 30 years) make fools of ourselves?

You haven't really explained anything -- just called people names.
