Interesting article but hardly applicable to most of the people I see
posting to the @ lists. I don't believe in such entities but even were
it the case energy vampires truly exist and in some natural or
supernatural way suck the psychic force of others you'll note that they
feed on the weak.
If you can demonstrate to me that the OpenBSD lists in particular or the
user population in general are psychic weaklings then we'll talk.
Otherwise your reply is pointless.
If you think I'm wrong, then contradict the post with useful facts. If
you think I have no right or standing to address such an article to
other OpenBSD neophytes (and I do include myself in that list), then say
that and backup your assertions.
If you're just offended then learn to deal with it. That's the upshot of
my post. OpenBSD appears to *me* to be a system and community aimed at
mature people who take responsibility for themselves and wouldn't let an
"energy vampire" suck them dry.

Before you go looking for or spotting Help Vampires perhaps you should analyze
yourself whether you are an Energy Vampire.
Willing or not, pointing out to people what annoys them is downright depressing.
