    @dder depends on how eccentric they are. Works generally.

    @3rdWorldPoison i would go for "how to ask a technical question in a useful way", since the problem tenda to be not lack of politeness, but lack of info needed for the fix.

    @Midnight-shcode I'd do that if these people could be rationalized with. And tbh at this stage of management this should be internalized in them. At that stage it's common courtesy.

    But I catch your drift. Of course the content of the reply email consists of my favourite issue templates across GitHub (and probably a much lesser offensive tone).

    or (yeah, juat joking now) :
    "FIX THIS!"
    "NO."
    "why not?"
    "because your question provided as much useful info as my answer"
