...flies and honey...

I agree with this. There are times when those of us who are other than full time developers simply face a problem which is hard to express.
Part of the help one needs might be to actually formulate the question.

There are certainly folks who come here, drop a 'please provide me with a solution', and seem to expect others to work for them. Based on my reading over the past several months, the ratio of actual 'abusers' to said response is far too small. I have on occasion responded by saying 'make some effort' as well. I hope not often... . The tone of some similar responses has been (to my way of thinking) arrogant and just plain pointlessly unfriendly.

I am reminded of the scene in RoadHouse where the new lead bouncer tells his team members to "..ask them to leave, but be nice, show them the door, but be nice...".

...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

[Eily]: I still don't understand how the Turkish AA fit into the German+Czech joke though :P
[LanX]: new Firefox + cb sidebar do random auto expand on submit
[LanX]: probably need to start pm discussion
[LanX]: they have a constitutional referendum in turkey, kind of "do you want a dictator" and everybody opting no gets problems ...
[Corion]: LanX: Random Auto Expand?
[Corion]: LanX: Well, everybody opting "yes" will also get problems. The question is more like "Do you want problems now or problems later?"
[LanX]: and the AA had posters with a big say NO with a small "to alcohol"
[ambrus]: LanX: is it the kind of free and secret vote where there's only one box you can check?
