Should RTFM Change to RTFD? Or JFGI?

Years ago, the acronym "RTFM" (for Read The F-in Manual) was used when some newbie asked a question that could easily be answered by reading the manuals that came with the compiler/tool/IDE/etc. However...that phrase feels outdated. I haven't used manuals in years - most of my searches use the SDK help files or a Google search. So...maybe we should start using "RTFD" for Read the F-in Documentation, or the other acryonym that I've seen pop up: JFGI, for Just F-in Google It.
