I know I am a rookie brewer but I now feel really stupid for having to google LMGTFY! Doh!
My biggest pet peeve is "this has been asked before...search the forum before asking the same question again" While it is good advice, sometimes the search functions don't provide the results you are looking for.
And it truly hate the "LMGTFY" posts...You go to all the effort to type the search into this website, then post the link on a forum to basically call people lazy.
Bottom line: Rule #1 of the Brewer's Code - Don't be a dick!
I don't mind a little good nature razzing.....its what we do sometimes. I did chuckle when i got the LMGTFY- it wasn't meant to be mean in that case.
I had to think about it for awhile to remember what it stood for. I've done that to someone once and it wasn't on this forum. He was full time, paid, computer geek just like me and kept asking questions that would all be answered if he just bothered to do a search himself. Everyone else on the thread thought it was hilarious. Him, not so much.
