    I don't think it is a request for spoon feeding when someone comes to the list and asks where to find something.  Almost ALL of the information we trade here can be found on the web.  If the answer was, "I know, but you go look it up for yourself" to everything, what would be the point in this list?  People come to the list for answers because they want advice and help from those who already know and they can ask specific questions about that information that a web page can't provide.  Plus, his answer is even less helpful for the billions of people who do not live in his region.  Personally, I think Jerry owes an apology to the person who had originally posted that message asking for help.  From his previous posts, he seems like an upstanding gentleman and hopefully his answer was born of a bad day.  We all have them and we all say things we regret later.  My guess is that he does regret his message as I have regretted messages before.
