We are here to learn and help, hopefully.
It's always easier to ask than to research, and as was said back a few posts, some folks are either in a bind or just frustrated.
I think we should try to help, with as little sarcasm as possible. Giving links is often a big help, and sometimes all that's needed.
I would hate to see this turn into something like the Perl forums were years back when Larry Wall's standard comment seemed to be "RTFM you idiot and stop bothering us superior beings!" (or words to that effect.)
A final thought - a lot of folks will see this forum as a place to go get some information and then get on with their life. It isn't anything against anyone here, its more like asking at an Information kisok and walking away.
