I suspect that what is being complained about is that this appears at
the top of every new message, even when the same text already appears at
the beginning of a quote at the beginning of the message. There's not
much to be done about that, and it's easy enough to snip out the old
ones, but not everyone does that and regardless it's still annoying.
Alternatively he could be offended by being told every time to RTFM,
when he already has and the answer isn't in there. It is entirely
possible to find this insulting; my point of view is, just ignore it,
but not everyone shares that.
A government exists to serve its citizens, not to control them.
