It's the polite way. And probably the only way you're going to get your 
questions actually answered.

Read the documentation. If you still don't understand something, come 
back and ask a specific question about what you didn't understand. Then 
we will respond to your politeness with our own polite answer.

Until then, your rudeness gets my rudeness in response.

Then use Google Groups to see that they have been, in great detail, and 
at a higher level than giving a newbie an "intuitive" rundown of the 
features.

Now go read the documentation.
