RKP, if you feel you are being attacked, that is most unfortunate. However, your most recent post makes your position clear in a way it wasn't before, and thank you for that.

It seems to me that people's "information seeking skills" are changing. Someone schooled before the wide availability (or even invention) of personal computers and (especially) the web & associated search engines may have a much more systematic - or even rigid - approach to finding out information than someone whose experience is of being able to find information "instantly".

(I'm in the former group myself, by the way; I do my research diligently before asking for help anywhere. Of course that doesn't stop me from posting dim-bulb questions when I haven't thought things through properly, as a few of my posts here will quickly testify )
