I think another reason this got reaped away is that this really is a question that showed no attempt to do any bit of research, and was only looking for the quick and easy answer. (FWIW a quick search
gives me 273,000 hits, with the first page of hits being very relevent). It's hard not to call it elitism, but when the good ol' days of the net were here, this person would possibly have gotten flamed for not doing a good amount of background research, including FAQs and the like, before posting. Add to the fact that it was posted as AM without very other many details and somewhat poorly worded, and it's hard to take the question seriously.
