[horde] Recent Horde complaints

Given the recent complaints to this list about Horde, I'm probably going
to get flamed for posting this.

Am I wrong in thinking that there are people attempting to run Horde that
aren't qualified?

Maybe others have more patience than I do, but it sounds like a simple
RTFM is needed in a lot of cases.  If you can't read the INSTALL document
first, we're not helping you.  And if you can't figure out how to satisfy
Horde's dependencies or get Apache and PHP configured appropriately, you
shouldn't be running Horde.

We're talking about basic system administration skills here.  Horde is not
a point-and-click Windows application.  Most useful server applications
have reasonable defaults but require some form of configuration to tailor
the application for your site's needs.

Frankly, I'm amazed that some of you are still answering questions like,
"I can't login to Horde", or "What is an IMAP server".
