Perhaps you should apply this rule to yourself, and stop telling us how 
to respond to people who give (in our opinion) indications of being lazy 
and dishonest.

It's not our responsibility to learn about the poster before answering. 
It's the poster's responsibility to convince us that we should spend our 
valuable time and knowledge helping them. If they don't make the effort, 
well, too bad for them if they're offended. They should get over 
themselves and realize we don't owe them anything -- not even a hearing.
