How about this. What if your mother decided to try out debian and had some questions about it? Maybe she would be overwhelmed and show up at the forum.
I got my degree in computer science and I have worked in the SEO industry, so I'm a much more competent google user than most people. Really I'm a lot more competent than 99% of people with any topic pertaining to computers, but I also have a shred of empathy for people who don't have my education and experience, and as this thread shows, there are a lot of people whose lives are so pathetic and meaningless that they really get a kick out of insulting people who aren't as knowledgeable and experienced.
But sometimes she won't have the right search phrase
Then probably I also include some details to my circumstance, ...usually that results in some one suggesting a better way to phrase the question, or key words, or sometimes, when some details are included, some one knows the answer,I tried using google to answer my question, using these key words "the key words or phrase I used ", but I did not get any results that could help me,
The SEO wizards with their "degrees", are constantaly using any forum,website ,blog, where ever they can to put in their phrases and garbage,which causes the search engine to give us results that are mostly advertisements, or completely irrelevant to what we are searching for.but because it is common knowledge in the SEO industry that a page with changing text is seen by the crawlers as an active
If someone is not sure about what they find on google, they should post and ask about it, people will tell them , which answer is best, if they also explain enough details.On a Google search you get hundreds of answers that may or may not be correct and if you follow the incorrect advise it may hose your system and or waist your time
When someone says "Google it" it means they have no idea what the correct answer is or that they don't want to be bothered helping you. (In which case, why do they even post at all?) It is a type of cyber bullying. They are saying. "I know the answer, but you are not worth helping."
Why do people respond to questions with "google it"?
Yes, I wish the SEOs and marketing engineers would stop polluting the web with their "self-righteous crap" and advertising, but that is another subject.t is common knowledge in the SEO industry that a page with changing text is seen by the crawlers as an active blog/news site, so the rank is bumped up. Believe me or not, I don't care, just stop polluting the web with your self-righteous crap.

The answer to that is really quite simple, I respond to question, with "google it", because I have googled it , and found good ,usefull results, and I believe that is the case for most of the others ,when they suggest that someone google it.
If you've found good, useful results through your search, why not link to one of those directly?
Usually that is the problem for most people, getting the right search phrase, some one with a small amount of intelligence
New to Debian (Or Linux in general)? Ask your questions here!
Of course this is dependent on the user checking their Control Panel before posting their query...
