: 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?

Have you *looked* in the archives? The discussions there are brilliant. There's not much point in repeating them unless there's something new to add. New infor, thoughts questions are always welcome but I'd be willing to bet that the discussion in the archives answers the question nine times out of ten. And that's the point, isn't it?
