Years ago on a 'newsnet' channel (or whatever they were called then) on a technical forum for a specific language a specific user routinely told people to RTFM. Not politely. And he would go off on a rant if anyone questioned him.

Now he literally was in fact 'better than your are' probably 100% of the time because he, at that time, authored at least two books on the language. I know they were good books because I bought both of them and at least one of them I considered a primary source. (If I actually remember the name correctly then I still have books by him and they are still primary sources.)

Surprising to me given that situation how inflammatory his posts were. I can't say he was the most negative poster that I saw but he certainly ranked up there.

So don't. Instead laugh. That is what I do. The more outrageous the more amusing I find it.

Certainly when they denigrate someone (including me) they are certainly not proving to anyone that their knowledge is better. Nor that their ability to communicate is better. Because of course if both of those were true then they could provide a clear and concise answer instead.
