Why would you want to suggest someone to search Google? If you do it and 
you find a link with an answer, post that link right away - or don't 
google and ignore the post. If you realize that the poster is a 
newcomer, you can additionally point out that error codes and messages 
can be found via a Google search, even though I would like to assume 
that anybody who is a newcomer, but works with TYPO3, will check in that 
very moment that Google is a source for answers, too. However, the 
keyword is "additionally". Everything else is a waste of time and turns 
into something very arrogant.

I would like to look at this list as a kind of "Collaborative TYPO3 
Cookbook", if you want. It is therefore absolutely necessary to keep and 
make each post as helpful as possible.

Not the least because eventually all posts show up in Google - and I am 
sure you know how stressful and time-consuming it is to dig through all 
those useless posts and/or dead links on Google...

Therefore: a useful, modest answer or nothing. My point of view.
