I get that there are some people out there who abuse the question. But far more annoying are the people who respond to a thread with a smart assed remark such as: "Do a little research and you'll find the answers yourself."
It's especially funny when they do this on a thread that's almost a year old because if they did a little research, they would deduce that the poster probably no longer needs the information. So really what they're saying is, "I feel better about myself when I'm an utter jerkweed."
If you don't know the answer, don't reply. If you don't have anything useful to add, don't reply. Replying like this only makes you come off as antagonistic and it makes me even less likely to try and help you in any of your future endeavors. We are a community and what goes around does come around. Being high on yourself does not mean that you are above me.
