Firstly I didn't write that note. Which proves it's a wiki document
editable by anyone.

Secondly I'm not going to write a disclaimer every single time I
refer to that handbook as it's a shared document editable by anyone.
It's there precisely to save wasted time writing the same email over
and over again. It's there to help library authors get a head start
on getting their library Boost-ready. Why would you disclaim with a
warning every time you link to the Boost wiki?

You might want to consider your tone. That was a real passive
aggressive dick thing to say. I invest considerable unpaid effort
into writing email, and it's a difficult choice when I would prefer
to kick a ball with my child instead. You don't have to read what I
write, but trivialising the fact I wasted my family time to reply to
your mean spirited whining isn't on.
