They are also loaded with propaganda and skewed information that
clearly show that their author has his own agenda.

A good tutorial in my book is a tutorial that shows the reader how to
make the best use of the described tools.  A tutorial is not supposed
to critique these tools, nor preach to tweaking these tools in ways
they were never supposed to be used.

Imagine a tutorial on using a car that devotes its main parts to
explaining how to dismantle the car and assemble a tank out of its
parts.  That's how Xah's ``tutorials'' read to me.

The way Xah's ``tutorials'' are written they are actually blogs, not
tutorials.  I have nothing against blogs, but let's not call each
thing by the name it deserves.
