with most of it. I guess my concern is where do you draw the line? It's a fine one and I would hate anyone who really needs and wants this site to be stifled. But on the other hand - yes, you're right - newbies should do a little research, check the site out thoroughly BEFORE asking questions. And I agree completely that whining shouldn't be allowed at all - we're all annoyed enough by this condition without listening to someone carrying on about what we all know are inherent components of the condition.
I think we have to have some leeway here though - maybe 2 tolerated whines and then on the third - EXCOMMUNICATION! - no, really, maybe a polite email from somone (maybe this has already been happening?) - same with asking repetitive questions...
