As for people who respond to questions with "Why would you even want to do that in the first place?", I absolutely HATE that. While it is of course a valid response in some instances, it seems to be the goto answer for the first responders to a far higher percentage of technical questions than actually merit that reply. Unless the opposite is truly obvious why not assume that the asker is not an idiot, and answer the question he's asking, instead of questioning the question. Makes me crazy.
