    Socially, it is rude, but on a more practical note, it means that there may be duplication of effort. If after some time you do not get a satisfactory response from one place, feel free to ask elsewhere, but don't ask in more than one place simultaneously.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
