I have recently been seeing a lot of questions which amount to the OP showing a decent amount of code and effort, with a "I got stuck here" conclusion. I suppose this is actually something which has been present for a long time.
Aside from when it started or if it is pervasive, I am curious whether or not it is more helpful in the long run to explain the whole position of why the OP got stuck with the hopes it will prevent this in the future for others, or if it is more helpful to directly show the missing code in their current (what is sometimes localized) example.
I know that in the past when I got stuck, looking at real code in other questions was helpful. However, so was a thorough explanation of the topic.
Should we aim at educating future visitors or at coding local examples?
