I'm a college student. I barely have time to program, let alone sift through large sets of documentation. That's why I ask for help from people who obviously have more time than I do.
The way you wrote that doesn't give a good impression of yourself. Although your intentions are ok, your wording sounds like you're just a lazy guy who wants people to do work for you. Now I'm not saying you are, I'm just pointing out the impression your wording gave to me.
Here's a better way of saying the same thing:
"That's a nice link but is there anything that answers the question that isn't so long and gets straight to the point to follow and then I can figure out the rest from there?"
... or something of that nature ^_^
