OTOH, I think that encouraging newbies to learn to problem solve on their
own is a *GOOD* thing, not laziness. Yes, there may be some folks on the
list that need to rethink how they word such encouragement. But climbing
the learning curve is not always easy or quick, and it can be frustrating,
but the result is a much more thorough knowledge.

I'd also encourage everyone that, if they don't have a positive, helpful
answer, then say nothing and let someone else answer the question.
