"Ridiculous"? Jeez, Sierra, don't hold back... ;-)

The message I saw was that if more people would look up the concrete
answers in life, there would be more time and less noise obscuring the
"different points of view" that the Techwr-l list offers. I think John's
original point (and he can jump in to correct me if not) in posting the
article is that we waste time answering, over and over again, the answers
that are easily available. That takes away from time discussing the
questions in tech. writing that are open to opinion.

In other words, if the lazy people would get off their duffs, they'd stop
interrupting us while we contemplate our craft.
