I'm far from asking you to spoon feed me.  I know nothing about
Gnome3, I've only recently started using it, and so far I've found the
documentation sorely lacking in areas related to configuration and
personalisation.  Since you know more than I do, and you provided the
link to the blog post I thought it reasonable to also ask you if
there's a resource available that explains how to do this sort of
personalisation on a per-user basis.

Thank you, that paragraph nicely sums up what I asked for.  Seriously,
I could have done without your attitude in the two previous
paragraphs.
