Did you even read what I just said?

Not the best etiquette to ask, anyway.

aka somebody that can't be bothered to work out their own routes or timings and is typical of the spoon-fed generation of kids these days who do not know how to work things out for themselves or investigate/trial by error (i.e. putting in the hard graft).

Rant over. :)

Yes, and when I was first playing with routes to beat Geoff and Neil's then record time of 18 hours 35 minutes, my times were coming in at around 19 and a half hours...but I didn't go crying to Geoff and Neil begging them to tell me their route or secrets of it to help me improve it - I did the hard graft and worked things out for myself.
