<VV> I suggest we do NOT always provide answers... but rather; we teach where to find the information. was: Books

Teaching someone how to access information is no different than teaching
someone how to work on a Corvair by MAKING them do the work while you guide

When I help someone work on a vehicle, they do the work and I guide/teach

When someone asks a question, I tell them were to find the answer so they
know where to look in the future.

I'd like to believe I've never been rude when I've pointed them towards
their answer.  Remember... it takes time for me to do the searches and email
them the pointers; I don't believe I'd call that a "look it up yourself"
