Maybe it's just me but the word "grovelling" just doesn't ring of
newbie friendliness. To each their own I guess. Kind of like the
Smalltalk list where a few respondents are really dry. Someone will
post asking something like "Can I use Smalltalk to do X so that it
talks to Y?" One guy (without pointing to a link or offering a
snippet) just posts "Yes." I guess literally they have contributed. Or
someone calls your house and asks, "Is so-and-so there?" You just say
"Yes" and hang up on them :-)
