I agree with Mark here (imaginey that); and to add to that I consider
this it poor taste, if not outright insulting, to just assume we are on
the same team.  We're not.  I for one will not be part of a "team" with
people that expect others to do their job for them.

^ that.

I am not trying to come down on the OP here, this is part of a much
larger problem.  The problem is one of entitlement and laziness.  You
can couch this in whatever politically correct (ask me about my thoughts
on that some time) phrasing you want, but it all boils down to this.

People have forgotten how to do things on their own and expect everyone
else to just drop what they're doing so they can work on the problems of
others.  Well, life's not like that.  People damned well need to start
doing at least a modicum of research on their own.

This problem is becoming more and more prevalent as time goes on; and
quite frankly the level of competence in IT and surrounding fields has
been going steadily down the toilet for quite some time because of it.

And people that defend, to whatever degree, this type of behavior are
part of the overall problem.  Three is a huge difference between helping
others and coddling them; start helping and stop coddling.  If _I_ can
manage to do my job without having to depend on others I'm pretty sure
it's a fair bet others can as well.

Much of what looks like rudeness in hacker circles is not intended to give
offense. Rather, it's the product of the direct, cut-through-the-bullshit
communications style that is natural to people who are more concerned about
solving problems than making others feel warm and fuzzy.
