Why We Make You Do It Yourself
There are plenty of forums where you can post a "how-to" question and get a fairly immediate answer. The answer may even be correct. But WebmasterWorld is about teaching you how to do it yourself. That way you can roll your own htaccess-- not just for today's problem but for tomorrow's almost identical one.
Here is the analogy:
Your child's room needs cleaning. You know that you can clean it yourself much faster and better than if you have to stand over your child and force him to do it right. But if you do the "make him get it right" part often enough, you will have raised a child who knows how to clean his room-- and who will some day stand glowering over his own children in the same circumstances.
Some day, someone else will post a question in the WebmasterWorld forums and you'll say "Hey, I know the answer to that one!"
