I have done a lot of programming and I know that I can solve almost any problem just by reading the manual or googling enough. Sometimes asking speeds up the process.
Now I have noticed that my questions "How should I do X?" or "Is Y possible?" are getting a lot of negative attention (rude answers, "why do you want to do this?", "read the FAQ"). Why?
Is it that the answer is not going to be a block of code? But a programming pattern or pseudo code?
Should programming pattern questions be asked in "programmers" and stack overflow is just for code?
Or is it that I am just asking it in a wrong way?
