Read the Fecking Manual, or is this a horrible 100-nil attempt?

Oh... is that really it? I thought RC was just joking with that. :o

common answer to common/really stupid questions. Means: 'Read The Fucking Manual' in that context.

Tech Support people often teach new hires that while you will strongly desire to tell the customer to RTFM, that's not polite. Read the Manual to the customer... because obviously, all customers are either stupid or illiterate. Either way, be kind.

(I'm serious... I've done a few stints in Tech Support.)

This is of course completely divorced from the reality of the situation, which is that they've just WAREZed the game, and don't have a manual.

Which is why you get people on AoKheaven for instance asking how they are supposed to get the good units like Knights and battering rams. They've seen them in screen shots, but they have no clue at all about the age advance system or how to play.

Hence, instead of helping them out, just tell them to RTFM.
