I've concluded that a vast number of our developers are actually
incompetent, and also clueless on how to self-study and to conduct a
search. Perhaps our education system has conditioned their minds to
mug up and to read various study guides, and they are unaware that in
the real world, self help is necessary.

Having said that, I have felt it useful to reply to such posts with a
google search url, than to merely ask them to buzz off. I've observed
that with such replies, free loaders understand that they will get
responses, but not free lunches.
