You've heard of Google, right?

I need to vent. I participate in a couple of forums where I'm glad to help people out to solve their coding problems. However, it annoys the crap out of me that people will ask “how do you” or “do you know of any code that does” whatever. Honestly, the first thing I do when I see a question like that is hit Google, and more often than not, I find something right away.

How hard is that for people to do before they ask the question? That's worse than a RTFM post because it's ridiculously lazy.

It's not just on programming forums either. It seems people will ask questions like that on most any kind of forum. Over on CoasterBuzz, there's always someone asking when an amusement park is open. Is it that hard to look at the park's site first?

I guess I'm just not in that big of a hurry to help people unwilling to help themselves first.
