After 1.e4 e6 2. d4 d5

what do you think about this position; is it a good opening/middlegame ?

It's not a middlegame yet, but the French is and has been one of Black's
most popular and resilient defences to e4 for a long, long time, up to and
including the strongest GMs/World Champions. I'd say that was fairly
conclusive proof of its viability.

He probably thinks he's a rocket scientist.

Well, and this explains his rudeness?

Calling senseless questions senseless is not rude, it is politically
incorrect.

You are rude and nothing else if you ignore the possibility that
what doesn't make sense to you might make sense to others.
Asking for opinions about a common and classical opening may
be a bit curious and is not likely to produce informative results, ok.
But so what? Do you also insult people who want to have a chat
about the weather?

Who are you to tell me whether I am rude or not.
If the people chat about the weather in weather-dedicated newsgroups,
that's fine.

There might be no replies to the original question that may make sense,
therefore the question is pointless. So either the author is a troll,
or asking wrong questions about chess.
