re: The "Elitist Developer" Debacle VIEW POST


1) search Google for problem
2) see forum post with someone having same issue
3) read thread to get answer
4) no actual answer given, instead, reply was simply "just Google it"

My friend and I were joking debating writing a bot that searched Google for "just Google it" replies on forums, and have the bot reply telling said person how destructive their comment is to the community as a whole.

I've always been against these sorts of replies... 20ish years ago, I learned programming by getting help from the Winamp developers via IRC. They were already super friendly and helpful, so I learned right from the beginning to help others in a similar fashion.
