I did a deliberate search before posting this. There's a similar question regarding Homework on SO, but didn't find the anything close to a duplicate.
Here's my concern. I can't help but to realize that there are more 'suspicious' questions here that are posted by SO users who just want a wholesale answer (complete code etc) to maybe solve a work project problem or to solve something they have no clue about. I will not finger-point here, I am sure some of the guys here might agree.
It is something like the homework issue but if it's to the extent of copy-n-paste a client's/colleague's email request into a question post, that really pisses me off. I hope I am wrong, but if it is true, what can we do about it?
My observation of typical behavior of these group of users:
- They seldom accept answers
- The question requires a huge effort to answer and often entire chunks of code
- They don't respond promptly (probably at work) and disappear when the problem is solved
