Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like all his questions correspond to one script.
So I think he is using Stack Overflow to do his work.
Thought this is bad behaviour.

A quick glance at the user's questions indeed shows that they might all pertain to the same script, but they are still quite reasonable IMHO. They're not always very understandable but they do include code, often show some research effort, and the user does accept answers. I've seen far worse. Maybe flagging specific questions would be a better approach than reporting this user on meta? – Frédéric Hamidi Jan 12 '12 at 11:31
Disagree with the comment above. I thought the questions look very poor and most are either NARQ or too localized IMO. – Martin Smith Jan 12 '12 at 11:31
@Martin, I personally don't find delete a clone from drop box in jquery, Resize option of the jQuery UI, or Div resize in jQuery after dropped to be either NARQ or too localized. Other questions may be, but those can be flagged individually. – Frédéric Hamidi Jan 12 '12 at 11:37
@FrédéricHamidi: "I want to do x, this is my code, it does not work", literally, are not good questions...and every single one I checked so far fall into that category. – Time Traveling Bobby Jan 12 '12 at 12:11
@Bobby, we're in agreement here, but none of the questions I linked to actually match that pattern. I'm not saying these questions are perfect or that all the questions from this user should be kept unflagged. However, reporting the user as always asking bad questions does not look actually fair or justified to me. – Frédéric Hamidi Jan 12 '12 at 12:20

Many people come to Stack Overflow with their job tasks for help - nothing new here.

If you think he's not putting enough effort to trying to do this by himself feel free to downvote the relevant questions.. after enough questions are downvoted the question ban hammer will strike and he won't be able to post any more questions.

Just one thing to remember: don't downvote all his questions at once as the system will see this as "serial downvote" and cancel it.

@PiotrDobrogost: If a user posts too many bad questions and gets lots of downvotes, they will no longer be allowed to post new questions. – Jon Egerton Jan 12 '12 at 11:40
