I have to agree, to a point, with those in the RTFM camp. It IS
time-honored, and the bit about "teaching a man to fish" has merit. It's
brutal, yes. But, like training a puppy by putting his nose into the

emailing the Internet to their mailbox. Ergo, RTFM is called for, for
the lazy, but style may dictate softening the blow. But, I've had RTFM
used on me, back when, and it didn't kill me to take the advice. Ric
