Got banned from stack overflow because my questions were too "simple". FML. Being a newbie sucks

    Answering questions to people, who can't even google a bit before asking sucks the same way. I'm tired of flaging. Duplicate. Duplicate. Duplicate. Just google damn title of question and click first question!

    Friendly downvote because I'm sure googling would have helped you.

    If your Google-fu doesnt solve your problem. Start typing various iterations of your question into stackoverflow's "ask a question" section without hitting submit.

    More often than not, you will find a question or answer incredibly close to what you're after, anyway.

    Read the docs on how to ask a good question and you won't be a newbie.

    @theScientist How do you mean?

    @theScientist I meant being a newbie at asking questions on SO :)

    But reading the documentation takes you a long way in programming too!
