I have to agree that people shouldn't be scolded for asking questions.  But
they should READ THE README FILE before they ask the question.  Otherwise,
they are just being LAZY.  

I think every computer program, game etc...that comes out nowadays always
tells the reader to READ THE MANUAL FIRST.  People have no excuse not to
read the readme files...they cannot hide behind ignorance anymore...it's
just plain laziness.

My view.
