This question already has an answer here:
- Exit strategies for “chameleon questions” 13 answers
I have seen it in a couple of places, and am now encountering this currently on a question I have answered. The thing I'm seeing is that the user asking the question is further adding to the question, but in very specific requests. I understand requests for clarification, but these further requests get to the point that it seems I am being asked to simply write out the code for the questioner.
It is my understanding, and my hope, that the site is for guidance, to help developers build their own skills, and it seems like answers should not be custom tailored to a specific purpose, and should certainly not be given such that they take all the thinking away from the questioner.
Am I correct in this belief?
