Why tutorials are shit

We can all agree that some tutorials are great really grate and sum are a bag of old grannies poo. It took me awhile to wurk out why this should be so but finally having red my most recent tutorial or the first two sentences anwyay I had my Eureka moment. Shit tutorials are written by people who are more interested in telling you how smart they are rather than a geniune desire to share knowledge. Look out for it and you will see so the next time a tutorial isnt working for you maybe its just the author with his head up his own arse not wanting to share his knowledge just wanting to boost his ego.

Hey, its just a thought you flaming people

    I particularly enjoy the ones that start rambling half way through and you think "errr you've realised this doesn't quite work the way you thought but you can't admit it!"

    See any noted "this doesn't work in X, Y, Z browsers or A and B browsers for that matter - so its pretty useless but woohoo ain't I a star!"

    I have to agree. There's been so many occasions that I've been following a tutorial and find that there's bits missing. Of course some of the great tutorial writers are off air at the moment, which is a shame.
