Some of it is indeed not so easy to find. A great deal of the questions, though, do have readily available answers. Most of these topics are not on some specific question that hasn’t been answered in one of the first things one should turn to (guide/FAQ).
And I’m not saying to ignore every question, but to be better at longer term solutions, like pointing to resources rather than always posting the same answer or perhaps on WK’s side, a big banner that says something like “Got a question? Odds are, it’s answered here [insert sources]” Although I never felt that stuff like the FAQ/Guide was hidden.
And I’m not saying I’m perfect. I’ve probably asked a question before taking enough time to check for myself, then felt silly when I realized the answer was right under my nose.
I think most people using this site are mature enough to realize their mistakes and if they are actually being shunned.
