That is exactly what I have read and learned in your answer - thanks 
again. And if it would have been obvious it is also correct to give an 
advice; "blaming" might not be the right term because I assume if you 
answer such a mail (about something obvious) you always want the other to 
pay more attention to documentation/FAQs/List archives etc. before sending 
an email.
