But seriously how hard is it to check the built in documentation in
emacs.  Yes it takes a moment to learn how to read but for answering
simple terminology questions it is very quick.  I'm all about helping
someone who needs it.  Emacs is certainly not just for programmers, but
it does require that you be able to read and learn how to use it.  It's
neither a typewriter, nor is it telepathic.
