A lot of times I have started a rant on people who were too lazy to use the search and made me do their work for them. At some times I am nicer than on others, I am only human too and have my mood swings. So at one time you will only receive a blunt reply as ‘Use the search, it is there for a reason’ and sometimes you will receive an answer, but I will include a sarcastic comment referring to the wonders of the search.
Some people have complained this was unfriendly of me and I showed very little concern for those with little experience with etiquette that applies to this forum. Sometimes those people are perhaps correct, but generally speaking you do know, deep inside perhaps, that I am correct. It is easy to give the answer sometimes, but you will learn so much more when you put in a little effort of your own (heck, with the search you do get your answer so much quicker at least 95 out of a 100 times).
But, for those poeple who just don’t seem to learn I have incorporated a new policy. The policy is based on the Sysadmin Price List. I have slightly modified the list so that it applies to this forum, but all other items found on this list do also apply still.
