    Thumbs down About Stupid Questions

    I just thought I'd write this in responce to the barrage of stupid questions on the site recently. Can I just ask that if you see a post like "How do I hack x" please will you just ignore. There are two things I really hate to see on this website:
    1) "Someone gave me an AntiPoint!" and
    2) "You stupid script kiddie." or whatever.
    If you see a clearly stupid question, give them a proper answer or just ignore them.
    Of course you don't have to take my advice and just reply to the dozens of stupid questions that come in ever month.
    Your decision,

    Some wise old Chinese man once said that the only stupid questions are the questions that are never asked.
    Dunno about it then.

    Unfortunately, some newbies need pointing in the right direction, but some people never learn and will keep asking the same stupid questions over and over again. Perhaps an AO FAQ is in order?

    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
