It's easier to tell someone to do something than to answer their question how to do it, but how is it
helpful to give a snide answer? If the questioner's success in performing an activity matters to you, and telling them to do something implies that it is, how do snide non-answers help you and the questioner?

is it worthwhile to you for the questioner to lower their estimation of you and devalue your requests and everything you say from that point onward?
