I'm resisting the urge to respond to your sarcasm with even deeper sarcasm.
Yes, I am familiar.  Yes, I tried to find this answer on Google.  Yes, I
tried to find ALL of the answers I posted here in the last few minutes on
Google.  No, I was not having much luck.

If my simple questions bother you, then just don't answer.  I post here in
the hopes that someone may know the answer without having to go to Google
themselves.  If you see a simple question, and you know the answer, and you
feel like taking the time to respond, then take 20 seconds and respond.  If
you don't know, or don't feel like answering, then don't.

When I'm stuck on a problem I DO actually use ALL of my resources available.
First I try to figure it out myself, then I go to the 2 reference books I
keep on my desk, then I go to Google.  If none of those turn up anything,
then I fire off a question to this list WHILE I KEEP SEARCHING GOOGLE.
Sometimes someone on this list will answer before I find it on my own, other
times I will find it myself first.

I REALLY don't mean to sound rude, but honestly - this list is full of
grouchy people who bark when someone who is not as advanced as them as a
question.  Jay, instead of being sarcastic, why can't you just A) Do
nothing, or B) try and help.

If I have misunderstood the spirit of this list, and it's actually NOT about
helping people, then please do let me know.

Again, please, I'm not barking back, or attacking or being rude. I am sorry 
if it sounds that way - all I'm trying to do is build a web site.
