So, I've been LMGTFY¹ed. I know this practice is discouraged on SO and SE, but is it also discouraged here at SFF.se? Different sites have different norms, so I'm asking specifically about SFF (i.e. I don't necessarily need to be redirected to SO or SE).
Is LMGTFY discouraged here? How do I best deal with a LMGTFY comment (Flag it as non-constructive? Ignore it? Comment back?)? I was thinking flagging a LMGTFY comment as non-constructive would be the best option, but, then again, I don't want to assume when it comes to flagging and possibly clogging up the mods' inboxes.
ETA: SQB suggested I provide context. A question was asked that introduced a non-canonical theory into a canonical situation, without any links or references for us to refer to in order to better understand the OP's theory. In my answer to the OP, I mentioned that it would be nice if he/she provided said links or references, mainly out of courtesy. Another user then left a LMGTFY comment -- I want to be clear that it was not the OP who was rude, but rather it was another user. The OP did edit in links to references on his/her theory, which was thoughtful and helpful.
¹You thought I was going to provide a written explanation of LMGTFY here, didn't you? (I'm sorry, I'm sorry -- I couldn't resist! Just a bit of cheek in light of the topic ... I am asking the question in all seriousness.)
