I can understand that. But my question to you is, when was the last time you picked up the manual for something and read it?
And if you say you always do I will say that you are very unusual. The expression RTFM came about because people don't read manuals. My dad was in the Royal Navy in WWII (just to give you a perspective on his age) and he used to say, "When all else fails, read the instructions". My point being that people have NEVER read the manual.
I used to work for a shop that sold fireplaces and woodburning stoves and gas fires. These all came with instruction manuals that I know for a fact were never read, because people would ring up and ask why the things weren't working, and the answer was 90% of the time something they were doing wrong that if they had read the manual they would know!
I have never seen that thread before you pointed it out. I wouldn't have known where to look.
The tutorials forum is tucked under the "Help!" forum. Most people will not admit to needing help even when they are struggling! Why would they look at a "Help!" forum, ifthey assume they don't need any help?
What I am saying here is, that if this post were placed somewhere more accessible, more obvious, and labelled as something that didn't threaten the ego, like "tips on finding the right partner", people would read it and maybe act on it!
