Re: Repeated questions

There is a distinct inflectional difference between telling someone "Go look it up!"; and more kindly commenting that "this is a topic that has been discussed many times and you will find it helpful to search the archives". The first is arrogant, the second is instructive.

However, when the answer to the question is simple to begin with and is on the tip of tongue, why not just simply give the answer and move on?

Civil discourse is cheap.
