: Here sometimes, and other places frequently, someone asks a questions and the response is, in affect, go look somewhere else.
: An example nearby is someone asks about '23 skidoo' and the response is in affect 'go search the archives, we've no time for your kind'
: Why do you invite people and them shove them off?
When a poster is referred to the archives, it's not really a brush off. The person responding knows that we discussed the phrase in the past and is pointing to the answer.
Now, do you have a question? I'd be glad to try and help you.
