I'll post a link to the FAQ if it's one of the stickies at the top. If it's burried a little deeper, I might dig it up and link.
My argument with posting a link to the stickied section instead of the thread itself is simply: why should we help anyone who isn't willing to help themselves?
The newb tank was meant as an area where new players can post questions without fear of flame or ridicule. It was never meant to be a spoonfeedfest for those too lazy to read anything.
