Well, you're one-third right on your adjectives.  Rude, yes; polite and
legitimate, no.  Perhaps you haven't been on Usenet long enough (or in
the wrong places) to see the hordes of students who expect other people
to do their work for them.  Laziness of the highest order, is what it
is, and many long-term Usenetters see it as rudeness.

I'm sure you find it quite shocking to discover that rudeness is the
frequent response to rudeness on Usenet.
