Who doesn't RTFM for the tools they use -- unless absolutely
necessary -- but writes manuals for other ones (IMHO all
programs are tools of one kind or another) notwithstanding?

Tsk, tsk, tsk...

I've got to admit that my family likes to tease me because I
_always_ read the manual for any device or appliance that we
buy - TVs, microwaves, toasters, vacuums. I kind of see it
as "professional courtesy", but I always know how to work
_all_ the features listed in the marketing hype.

[Hey, hon. Did you know we can program the microwave to
sterilize the kitchen while we're out? Put the dog in the
garage while I set it up.]'
