 Yes, this seems like a birth-right for a lot of Indian developers. It is as
if they
consider the effort to post in a forum to be less than the effort involved
googling and getting the answer directly.

 I have seen a lot of developers with Indian names getting flamed and burned
 at several comp.lang.* groups for posting stupid questions, which can often
 be just fu***ng googled.

As someone posted previously, this seems to be  a result of the kind of
education system that thrives here which favors mugging up rather than
original research and exploration.
