It is a bit surprising to see on IRC how often people are asking for 
help but trying desperately to either 1. not provide enough information 
so that anyone could possibly help, or (even weirder) 2. argue with the 
people trying to help with them or insist they didn't really need the 
help anyway once they get the answer they're looking for.  The former is 
surely just laziness, but there's something psychological going on with 
the latter.
