I think what is intended is for people to search, at the very least, this website for answers and not necessarily the internet. Think of this website as a knowledge base. It's chock-full of great information right at your fingertips. For free even!! And although questions seem new to the person asking, on a forum this large, most likely they aren't new at all.
Keep in mind that the information/answers you get here are free of charge and know one is getting paid to provide anything. They are doing it from the kindness of their heart.
