Understood and agreed. But how can you tell from one person's email asking a
question if they are LAZY or not? It just seemed like you were too quick to right
him off as if he were one of those people. A quick critical comment seems like
the lazy way out of helping someone in my eyes.

And another way of learning is asking questions. I too researched before buying a
car... pre-internet I used the library... 1996 found the DML... 1997 found the
DeLorean Club of Ohio.... 2003 bought a D. In all those years I was learning....
and I STILL have questions.... even AFTER reading the frick'n manuals. Talking
about my occupation now,  I do know that I learned more after one summer
internship of hands on experience that I did from 4 yrs of "manual reading" 
"college education". Maybe your the type who comprehends the written word better
than others, I don't know?

Again, agreed.

I guess all I'm asking is not to write someone off as "Lazy" and criticize them
if one of their post asking a legitimate question annoys you. Unless of course
you know for a fact that said question asker is a lazy mooch... then rip away,
and explain to others how you know this fact.
