It's just the way I am ;-)
I touch type at about 60 words per minute, so it is as easy to actually
answer the question as it is to belittle the user.

If you mean "read the man pages", then, while I agree, in principle, that
these options are in the manual, that same manual gives very little
contextual information. I find man pages useful for reminding me about
syntax and correct option "spelling" and use, but when I don't know how to
use something, often its man page only confuses me more.
While there are, I am certain, other documents that would provide this
information, the lack of a comprehensive index makes finding it without
help a daunting task. When I can provide better sources for information
than the man pages, I do so. When I can't, and I am able to answer the
question, I do that instead.

That is quite a sweeping statement...
Thanks, I'll keep that in mind ;-)
