so will you show me?

Journalism Alison Gow offers five phrases to ban in the news room:
"Saying 'I don't know how to use/make that' is pefectly ok - so long as you follow it up with 'so will you show me?' No one is born knowing how to run an rss feed into a widget, but plenty of people in your newsroom have learned how it works and will help you out if you ask."
Yes, yes, yes! But more than that, people who don't experiment, or won't take the time to find out how something works, as in journalists who join Twitter, write three tweets then write an article saying how rubbish Twitter is. Oh, do sod off.
