An old topic, but in the Q&As I've seen a lot of questions about cross-thread failures in UIs. It gets asked time and time again and yet is so very basic. There must be a million and one things on the internet about it, so why can't people just Google around a bit rather than charge in and demand an answer? Or even more radical, buy a book and learn a bit about the subject?

Whilst the intentions of Q&As are admirable, I think by answering questions such as this we are just aiding the demise of experienced developers who know their field. Seriously, why should we bother to help people who make no effort themselves? Oh yes, reputation points.
Regards,
Rob Philpott.
