    195195OP posted a question which Google answered very easily. Shows lack of intuition/laziness. Question also wasn't appropriate for this list. 
    196196== How to answer questions on the list == 
    197  * we were all newbies once - if you feel a question is too trivial to answer, do not flame - ignore the post. 
    198  * ideally everyone who uses django should know the basics of python, html, css, SQL and the http protocol. But we do not live in an ideal world. If a post shows lack of such knowledge, gently point the poster to resources that would help.

    199199 * 90% of errors are explained in the last line of the traceback - this is not intuitive. The rest of the traceback needs an experienced hand to interpret. Educate users on the last line. 
    200200 * If you feel the user hasn't made enough effort to find the answer themselves, explain to them why, and give them some guidance on how they can do this (point them to this page).
