Yes, I already understood that the consensus appears to be to reserve
blame for those programmer type people.

But when nobody of them can be bothered any more, some users will have
little choice but aspire to looking at error messages and trying out
obvious fixes to them at one point of time, too.

Knowledge organizes in pyramids.  And one can't build those without the
intermediate layers.
