I have to agree with Joe on this one. Professionalism should rule.
In this particular situation, a newbie might decide the issue of
suppressing status messages has to do with "messages", not "users", and
therefore do all their research under "messages". A search of user
profile options might not even cross his/her mind.
And I'm not saying that people should not be told from time to time to
'look it up yourself'. I probably have the highest ratio of "questions
asked" vs "answers provided" of anyone on this list. I try to find
answers first. Sometimes search results don't quite address some nuance
in the question.
I enjoy being a single-person shop because I don't have to answer to
anyone. But the bane of it is, when I'm stuck, I'm stuck. There's no
one else here to ask. midrange.com is a lifesaver for me.
