Is it just me, or did this entire email of yours lack common courtesy?

I suggest the same to you. . .

Alright, so let's rip the experienced people who have taken the time to write
these sources.  Sending newbies to the archives and/or FAQ is the easiest and
most logical thing to do - it saves many of us, especially those who have
written the various FAQs, much time - and it allows the newbie to get more
questions answered and to a larger extent than if he were to just ask one
question over the mailing list.
