I have been active on Stack Overflow for over a year now and lately I see more and more of "please do this for me questions". This is different from the "mini-orders" question, where the asker says "I need this-and-this, give it to me". In the "please" variety, the asker seem to have some general understanding of the subject and often the questions would include some bits of code and such. The language in the question would also be polite. However the answer to the question could be found in 5 minutes by simply searching on google or such.
In cases like this, I would try to help, provide relevant information and link to where more info can be found (if possible, of course). However what really annoys me is when my answer like this gets a comment "Thanks, can you please show me step-by-step how exactly I need to do this?" or even gets downvoted. I don't mind getting downvoted if it's for a good enough reason. If the reason is that the asker simply isn't happy that I didn't put everything on a silver table, it's a different story.
Here's one example of what I am talking about (no downvote here): How insert data manually in sqlite in android. Asker commented the answer with:
Thanx, but please provide me with steps to go to sqlite tool and what to click
I guess, there are two questions here in one: (a) Am I missing something and being unreasonable? Should I have just provided perfect step-by-step instructions? and (b) If I am not missing anything and I'm write, how should we deal with such queries while still being polite? The question in my example is fine, however it's the follow-up comment to my answer that I'm concerned with.
