You are totally misrepresent my intention - "do search first, post later"
it's an offer to a person, who came into huge library and instead of start his quest by himself, look into a catalog, begin search, etc
he is shouting - give me the book, article, post, I can't read, I can't search, I need the answer now !
So, someone (is that what you want from me?) should do search, reading, quoting for him - re-posting same info what already been posted a few times for other inquisitors , right ?
It's same process as we learned in a school, college, university (some)...
[Practically, as EE and IT, I'm all for rtfm where it is necessary.]
PS. You are exaggerating too much, hope you're doing that not to humiliate me as a member here.
