    Hmm, maybe there's a correlation between being a good programmer and (no longer) having to ask questions, you think?

Most of StackOverflow is canned answers, and most high reputation users have learned this.

Very few times are there questions that require understanding the situation. We just have to know what you are trying to do.

For instance, clicking a link via Javascript doesn't really require much understanding.

Thats the cool part about programming. There is really only a few ways to do stuff. Which makes it easy to provide answers.

    I disagree on "There is really only a few ways to do stuff" in programming.

  • @Vishal: I think his point is that programming is essentially very simple. The complexity comes from programmers.
