I am referencing this question Python Interview Questions
This question showed zero research effort, so in one of my comments I used a "Let me google that for you" link. Is that over the top for this type of question? Is the use of these links allowed under any circumstances?
Update: I agree with this comment
Questions with an answer that is trivial to find on Google are not helping the SO community. They are generating superfluous reputation, lowering the bar for asking genuine questions, and generally wasting people's time. Furthermore, the answers to these questions are almost always summarized, plagiarized or synthesized from the Google search results. Posting a LGTFY link is like tough love. It points the user to the right answer and does it in such a way that they will hopefully turn to Google for simple questions and SO for their more difficult questions.
