The guy was simply stating that he's human and headn't read it yet. He also
pointed out that an implicit behavior was not explicitly documented as such,
but more so infered by output when using the --no-executable flag.

'  -f, --force                   force mount, don't warn about missing mount
                                point directories

To you guys saying 'get off the computer' I suggest you put the pedant pills
back in the bathroom and go have a smoke or something - because you're being
a dick about it.

Cut people some slack for once - they're on the same side as you trying to
achieve the same goals.
