I agree with Jonathon ReinhartJonathon Reinhart (and obviously already upvoted his post). Since we are in a mode I would like to offer my observations and thoughts.

We no longer have two very useful reasons to close: "demonstrate effort" and "provide code sample/SSCCE". The remaining reasons do not match such situations well. I read the answers to this post as well as similar discussions here and it seems that we supposed either answer these "I was given a task but have no idea what's it about" or just ignore them.

There are a lot of posted questions that could be answered just by plugging its title into Google search. There are a ton of the same questions coming almost daily that would not be needed if OP just tried to search before posting or even look at the right side of the screen after posting. Yes, the latter could and should be closed as duplicates. I'm however amazed at the complete lack of effort on part of people asking them.

Programming is constant learning, constant research. These people are not "beginner programmers" as they are portrayed in these discussions. They are "I do not want to become a programmer and do not care how to solve the problem as long as I can pass somebody else's code as my own and be done with it".

It, however, seems that SO community finds some benefit in becoming "do my homework for me" kind of place. What such benefit might actually be is beyond my comprehension.
