I know it sounds ridiculous but I can't ask any programming-related question in SO, without seeing that super-annoying reply
what have you tried? see about stackoverflow..
I know, and ok, if that's the rule of stackoverflow, so be it.
But what if I didn't tried anything because I don't know what to try, and that's why I'm asking it in SO ?
so, one remark and one question:
- I think that the rule "only ask questions about things you have tried" is ridiculous. I would like SO to be a database where every question should be asked (so that all programmers could find useful answers, not only specific cases.)
- And my question : what if I have a "how do I do this.." type of question? what.stackoverflow.com should I enter?
