Hmmm. Kind of odd. Someone involved in the language they're having
trouble with wrote some documentation for the exact thing they're
asking for, you tell them where it is, and that doesn't deserve
thanks?

Something's wrong here. Well, it's about time for that which must be
read by everyone on the Internet to be mentioned again.

If you haven't read this yet, read this:

Especially if you have asked for help and not gotten what you wanted.
Especially if people ignore your questions.
Especially if people give answers that don't help you.
