Nah, it's not. They are also people... I think.. Actually, I've never 
seen proof that they all are, so some may actually be chimps. :)
Anyway, some are standing on such a high pedestal that they feel 
everyone is beneath them. I speak from personal experience (yes, I've 
been egocentric and ignorant before and yes, I met someone who was 
worse.. much worse). But then I guess true wisdom is to know the extent 
of one's own ignorance. :)
So just ask. Yeah sometimes you may get a rude response. I've had a few. 
So what. Their attitude is their problem, getting your question answered 
is yours. They help you with your answer, you help them with their 
attitude. You learn through the experience, they don't.

Don't be. Who are they to judge you? You think they never took the easy 
way out and ask a mailing list or forum instead of using google? At 
least I will admit I have once or twice. (Oh sorry guys, no I don't 
claim to be a guru, sorry sorry, yes yes, you are the masters. Bow, bow, 
kneel, kneel ;) )

Perhaps the reason why you're not finding a solution, is because it 
seems to me you have a preference for a non-standard solution (at least 
in this occurrence). As a result, you may be searching in the wrong 
direction and hence, you're not finding any clear answers. (Unless I 
misunderstood something). But I don't fully understand your situation. I 
don't know what you've learned so far and what knowledge and experience 
you have. So I won't judge.

On the contrary; I found it quite amusing. ;)
