While I realize that you are a 10-year veteran of this group (at least, so you've said) and probably get tired of answering the same questions over and over again, it's still no excuse to be rude to people when telling them to go use google instead of wasting your time. Especially if you want to increase readership. Everyone has to start somewhere before becoming an expert with something as complex as Oracle (DB, AppServer, whatever), and being encouraging rather than derogatory is more likely to get people to stick around after they stop being annoying n00bs.

Most people just don't want to get involved in an obviously impending flamewar over something theoretically off-topic by showing support for someone who is willing to step forward and call another person out on their rude behavior. So yeah, I agree with Barry. Sorry.

I've been subbed to these oracle groups for about a year now but up until about a month or two ago have done nothing but immediately 'catchup' the groups without even reading. I'm not sure what got me actually reading them recently, but it has been enlightening so far, random bouts of crankiness aside.
