Actually it sounds more than harsh.  If everyone had acess to a
"decent academic library" it probably wouldn't be, but many don't have
access to a decent library. I've seen and experienced faculity members
asking for research materials to present in their courses where I
live.  Some universities have sold part of the library resources
reducing their libraries to a tenth of what it had been.  The city I'm
living in is a captial city but again unfortunately not all countries
have readily available resources.  Hopefully those who complain about
questions will never have to ask anyone a question about anything -
including being in a foreign country and wanting to know how the
system works.  Remember this list is International.
Now if you excuse me I'm going back to enjoy the discussion on slow
