It has been established in "Embrace the non-Googlers" that we shouldn't be attacking users (especially new users) for asking questions that can be easily answered by a quick internet search.
However, the tooltip on the question downvote button reads "This question does not show any research effort". The way I see it, this tooltip explicitly recommends downvoting non-Googlers. Isn't this a direct contradiction of longstanding policy?
If we're not supposed to tell people to go google questions themselves, why does the tooltip urge us to downvote people for not googling?
If we want to embrace non-Googlers, shouldn't the tooltip change, so that people can't use it as an excuse for DVing people who haven't really done anything wrong?
