Someone seeing too many unthoughtful questions from you might tell you
to look it up yourself, in the hopes of getting you to change your
questioning style, so that your future questions will be more thoughtful
and worth answering.  But according to you that would be unfriendly.

Another thing they could do is say nothing, but quietly configure their
news-reading software to ignore your questions completely.  Then none of
your future questions would have any hope of being answered.  Would that
be less unfriendly, or more unfriendly?
