Earlier I answered this question which later got closed because it is "too localized". I can see that argument (nobody else will ever run into the same SyntaxError ever again) so I am OK with that. My question is whether or not I should have answered at all.
I answer questions on SO because I like to be helpful. Not answering seems almost un-human, but I do understand that we don't want to reward users for asking questions that are too localized ... Thoughts?
(I suppose this question could be asked about any question which is likely to be closed, but it seems particularly applicable to the overly-localized questions).
