    I am surprised you got so cross about the question that you went to all that trouble. There are plenty enough lazy questions around! Why did that one 'get to you'?
    If lazy questions annoy you then just don't respond. Keep Kool. :-)

    They don't annoy me. On this one I got curious myself about the details, so I looked it up. But there is nothing wrong with helping people to help themselves, by showing them how to look it up things.
