When I open the page it says, "Enable javascript to use LMGTFY."

How do I enable javascript?

BTW, Nelz, you have officially declared yourself insane?

We need a name for those who provide answers to help questions that completely fail to read the question in the first place - something more generic than "Ubuntu forum users" :)

My first thought was "Microsoft (TM) helpdesk operators" but that's not very generic any more. :twisted:

Something kind of antithetical to a troll is needed.

I am reminded of "butterfly management", a well-known technique where the new manager arrives, flits around for a while making everybody feel good, then flutters away to the next and bigger job, leaving behind on their desk bright golden discs shining in the sunlight. The staff reach for them excitedly, then gag and reach for the tissues. They are butterfly poo.

So how about "Help butterflies"?
