Re: RTFM? Really?
So, maybe instead of RTFM, we should just say RTFD (Read The F***ing Documentation) and separate the delivery method from the fact that there actually is adequate documentation even if the customer doesn't bother with it.Nancy's got a really good point. We do the best we can to provide whatever assistance we can to our customers. How we deliver that assistance is secondary to actually getting our customers to consult that assistance. It doesn't matter whether it's on paper, a PDF, online help or whatever... if our customers fail to avail themselves of what we've created for them, they're going to pick up the phone.
