How about "Cygwin - where it DOES eventually hurt to ask if you start a
conversation saying 'I know nothing about X but couldn't you just...'
and then keep asking that question in various simple ways even when it
is politely implied that it is not possible."
Nah. Not as catchy.

that was considered rude? Everyone understands the reference, right?
