In reference to the newbie flaming, some people just need to learn how to excercise some restraint. Then again some of us just sit around at work and constantly browse the forums all day, waiting to post.. about anything.
I think I'll personally start working on my canned messages for the newbie questions and start pasting from notepad. If we can get enough of us to do the same, maybe they'll get the idea. Just need to resist... let Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V do all the work.
