in thread When do we change our replies?

I do like pointing people to answers, and even enjoy writing out homework code, because it helps me learn, even when it isn't in the best interest of someone who doesn't know the coding trick I might.

However, I'm also down for saying "look up your own stuff". This type of statement might even come out of me depending on the type of day I'm having. This type of inconsistency isn't good for PM as a whole imho. It isn't good for anyone if I make a statement to a newb today based on my emotions that I might not make tomorrow.

We are all newbs once, and we all know more, and less than someone else.

I guess what I'm wondering, is if there is a chance we can hash out some form of consistent guideline for the mid-line people in PM to follow, so we have consistent advice for newcomers to keep the newbs feeling comfortable coming back.

    Yuck, please no, that sounds awful.
