I edited out from the original this line:
please don't tell me to read a huge tutorial, if you can't answer, please don't.
In a comment I provided a link to a (rather short, IMO) tutorial, along with what may have been poorly-expressed frustraton/irritation at his question and lack of effort (link redacted, and a typo–I meant to say "without proof of research [...]"):
Like this "huge" tutorial? You don't get to decide how people answer your question: without proof or, or apparently desire to, research a question, this kind of runs afoul of what's considered a good SO question. – Dave Newton 1 hour ago add comment
In an incomplete-but-accurate answer I explained it as simply as possible, as requested.
As a response to my comment, I got this
Dave, please don't answers my questions anymore... If your not willing to answer, just DON'T...
Other than the obvious "walk away", which is what I should do, am I wrong in thinking that:
- The original question's content made it a poor SO question because it basically stated the OP was specifically excluding doing any actual research, and/or
- The response to my comment was out of line?
I'm cool with being off-base on this, but if I am, I'd like to know how, so I can re-evaluate.
Edit It's possible he was peeved with me for my answer to how to use rails format.json, which was a longer question, with a better answer (also from me), but after the comments on my answer I decided he was in over his head and suggested tutorials.
I didn't realized it was the same user; perhaps I brought it on myself due to being short with him a couple of days ago.
