Although it is a good "guideline", It doesent state they arent alloud, just to avoid them.
So why is this only a guideline? Might be good to turn this into a rule.

Of course, you're totally right on this. But is it really necessary to insult for this? Solving disrespect by behaving with more disrepect?

I found almost everything I needed. And I was so terrified (LOL) of getting flamed, I researched what I didn't find on ASC elsewhere and did pretty well.
A week ago, we were 9600 users on ASC. Now we are 9730. 130 new users in one single week. We got about 7 newbie threads this week. So we can say that 5% of newbies don't read the FAQs. But this means too that 95% have read them, or at least, avoided to post, knowing what would have happened. This unfortunate (or lazy) 5% just needs to be told "Read the FAQs please", as Lokes pointed out:

If 5 ASC members in a row just write "Read the FAQs please", nothing more, the noob will understand. Just let the thread alive for a day to let the noob read it and be aware that the FAQs exist and MUST be read unless no answer will be provided. Simple, no?

Ok... so this means that unless you're a known Airsoft player, you can be given a truckload of shit from wannabes veterans?
I'd say: "Answers are earned, not freely handed out". It's common sense. If the guy has proven that he made his researches and still has a question, there will be no problem.
