Windows 7: What's up with the Newbies these days

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
 
 

Just an observation i've seen over and over. You take the time to explain how to fix a problem and you never know whether he or she tried it, if it work, got worse, or what. If a person takes the time and effort to help, please post a reply and let know the outcome. Just my 2 cents

So, what is the consensus?

Is "Google is your friend" and/or "Let me Google that for you" an acceptable response?

I like LMGTFY .. it gets the noob in the habit of using google first, but sends a subtle message at the same time ... multitasking.. I like it!!

you could always say let me google that for you then give them the google link. It all goes back to how much responsibility must they take. I think it varies by the level and language of the OP

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.

Actually I have 25 years in the PC business, started using Windows with version 1.3, have worked for Computer Associates and Hewlett-Packard in Silicon Valley, asked only one question, and have helped others in my brief time here. Mostly I read. Hell, yesterday I spent two hours reading every post in the "Show us you desktop" thread.
