If I were you, I would be only interested in improving my own knowledge which is very less, rather than commenting and passing sarcastic comments over others. This place is not a rocking place because it has many many visitors from all over the world but because it has the best of the bests in the Oracle community sharing their knowledge, discussing things and make people like me, you and all who have a long way to go , to learn this complex technology and solve our doubts , issues. It's a complete privilege to have a chance to discuss things with Gurus like Hemant, Justin Cave, Hemant, Hans , Jonathan Lewis, Mark Powell, Mark Bobak, Sybrand, John, Dom Brooks and many many more as the list is too long to be put up over here. These guys are here almost daily and it's because of their knowledge and experience sharing, this forum is so elite and probably the best! I would suggest that you just concentrate on your knowledge being improved rather than any thing else. If you really think you are really brilliant as you have mentioned, spend some time to solve other's issues too.
By the way, I just had this wild hunch. That those who are boycotting me seem becoming insecure or threatened of me :(
The can feel how becoming brilliant I am.
Because I might surpass their knowledge in an easy way. Could it be the reason? :)

Totally agree, and I haven't thanked Hemant enough for the help he's given me over the years (whether he's known it or not :p ), but I'm going to throw out some half-baked devil's advocate thoughts.
Kids these days, they've been raised on simple computerized apps, including web site queries and voice response telephone trees. Consider a group of computer wannabees, all helping each other kickstart their careers. There certainly can be a downside to this (fake references on resumes, braindumps and so on), but there can be an upside too, namely an enthusiasm for trying and doing, in this case that is delegating work and inquiries to this magic fount of all knowledge. So while there is a need for slapping them down for not trying and doing in the way we as pros expect, there is also an opportunity to redirect the effort in a positive manner.
Ignoring/shunning doesn't elicit the desired response at all. At best, it is unpredictable, and it can go down from there to creating subgroups of people helping each other do things wrong, while cliquishly reverse-shunning those whom they think are attacking them.
So I think a patient repetition of how to ask questions, how to search the docs, what the proper ethics are, and so on will have a better effect. People will emulate what they see as a proper response, especially if they see it from the majority. Simple gang-faqs or belittling just doesn't quite do it, we've seen how some people just build bigger defenses against it.
We don't see the people that go away or are too frightened to come in, only rarely do we see those people actually complain about it elsewhere. They have a point.
there is also an opportunity to redirect the effort in a positive manner.I agree - however, some people refuse to be redirected, regardless of how positive the effort is. Fortunately, such people are few and far between (not mentioning any names)

Sorry, I thought you would know what [url https://forums.oracle.com/forums/message.jspa?messageID=10547201#10548275]boilerplate I meant :)

So if you have one too, check out https://communities.oracle.com . This forum being paid is going to completely destroy the meaning of a free discussion forum .
Good Day everyone!!!
RE: Forums upgrade scheduled for May 3-6. More information is available here.
I just have an idea. What if part of the upgrade (sooner or later) is that the forum will charge 1$ for each post? And 50c of it will go to the support who give the correct solution first.
Is that okay with you? Is this case everyone will reserve their questions for the better and not flood the forum. :)
Your comments are welcomed.
