People who reprimand new members that does not use the search function fail to realise that there are members who love to spoon feed lazy babies.
Newbies Corner is a good place to...
1) Answer newbie's question
2) Ask newbie to search (supply keywords if necessary)
3) Ignore newbie's question, wait for someone else to answer
4) Ask newbie to search and be rude/sarcastic
I think the problem (and possibly what TS is referring to) is the 4th one, which I think is happening quite frequently. It has come to a point where it seems that they put down the newbies just to make themselves sound like an "old bird". There is no need to spoon feed if one don't like it, but there is no reason for one to be rude/sarcastic.

its just too frequent every now and then. this is something worth thinking about.
make the forum a nicer place to surf. instead of getting shot everytime a newbie asks something. what will they think of this forum.
if you want them to find, fine. but whats with the rude/sarcastic remarks?
make this world a better place by starting with ourself.
once, the ppl in the Mac User Group Singapore, shouted 'go google or make a search', i quit. switched to discussions.apple.com; good move! those guys there are knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and lastly, won't shout at you to 'go google or make a search'
right. i think there are still friendlier ppl out there in this forum. hope to see more of this...
http://discussions.apple.com/thread....ageID=10664756This is how I set mine up at no cost other than some time - if you do the same, Google is your best friend for the next couple of hours - there is loads of help out there to do this, and help through this thread will be way off-topic:
http://discussions.apple.com/thread....ageID=11427316Google are your best friend :-)
http://discussions.apple.com/thread....ageID=11230826See this, Google is your friend.
google is your friend. type in subject, then apple support in the google search field.
example: time machine apple support
Apple has a search on the Apple Support page too. Go to support page, on left under "browse
support" select the product. After product page loads, use the search box on upper right menu
to enter subject and search.
Google is your best friend, never forget that. I searched eSTATA 130804 and found that it appears to be a LaCie eSATA PCI Express card. You should be able to take it from there.
My own point of view....
*Feel like helping - Answer the question even if its been asked a million times.....
*Fed up from answering the same question again & again - Don't even want to read the POST.
Scuba & Father... For Life

the "jolly well ignore your question and let you rot" is perhaps not an attitude i agree with.. because the simplest riposte to that would be "why don't you just do that?" and then there is nothing to say to that.
the road to hell is paved with good intentions, i think people here can be too sensitive and think that sometimes, someone is mocking them when they are not. so let's all have some form of open mind, try not to be too catty when people overreact to a simple joke...
i do admit i enjoy a good laugh and all when someone asks if L lenses will have problems being mounted on a 400d, of course. i'm only human. it doesn't take a senior member or someone being so-called experienced in photography to see the humour and nonsensical nature of that, right?
