Yes, it is your site and your guidelines...and I certainly appreciate that. I'm not saying people can't be directed to using the search function...that is a reasonable answer to a question.
ie: " this topic has been discussed very regularly, please use the search function to find related threads" ; not a sarcastic remark belittling the user for not knowing better.
That's all I have to say...
