Right, exactly. In the context of a Twitter or forum thread, that kind of urgency is unlikely. (In fact, in the case of medical care, that kind of urgency probably doesn't happen as often as it does in tv shows, which make every situation as critical as possible, for the sake of drama.)
well i mentioned stroke because its one of those things that can absolutely be time sensitive. to the extent that failures by staff that moves patients or poor/inadequate communication of information to the doctor can and does cost people lives or serious harm. but yeah, most conditions aren't like that, not even all strokes.
for twitter, i suspect this is more along the lines of my complaint wrt strategy help threads. if you see the same question or statement five times, ten times, etc and it's low effort/doesn't appear to respect others' time, you can get rude responses like this. it's kind of generally obnoxious, but whether the question itself or the answer is more obnoxious depends on context.
let me give you the example that came to mind which prompted my first post here: https://www.reddit.com/r/hoi4/search/?q=good division template&restrict_sr=1&sr_nsfw=
"is this a good division template?"
this question (or a variant of it asking what one is) is so common that it's stupid. the correct answer in that game is to learn what stats do, evaluate the tradeoffs of putting different things in the division, and then optimize them for some purpose. quick glance suggests that < 10% of these threads even specify what they're trying to accomplish with a particular division.
that means that 90% of the players asking this question are not only asking a wrong question, they are also putting in virtually no effort at improving, requesting the same thing hundreds of people before them have requested, won't understand how to distinguish between good and bad advice they get in response, and had the best answer to their question available years ago a quick search away.
i've long since stopped being surprised by it, but it's still kind of amazing in a way.
so now people there have seen a variant of this question dozens of times. they've seen inaccurate answers repeated about it, also dozens of times. perhaps pointing out that it's not worth answering is obnoxious. but you know what? so was the question, and more so. if players actually want help, actually want to improve, it is reasonable to expect of them at least semi-comparable effort to accurate answers.
if someone doesn't try when asking the question, why should anybody try in answering it? i extend this question both to gaming, and to topics outside of it.
