I recently came across a post that basically asked "How do I do X?". No research effort, code, or any other details provided. Myself and a few others commented for more information. A few minutes later someone answered the question with code.

I down voted the answer and commented because I feel like answering a question like this only encourages people to ask these types of poorly written, undetailed questions.

Am I wrong for down voting the answer?

    Did you downvote the question? If not, it seems unfair to single out the poster who put in more effort of the two.
