As programmers we talk about code smells, little cues that indicate we should be worried about a section of code. What are some Question Smells? Are there flags in questions that make you less inclined to answer them?
A question that's shorter than its title is a bad smell. It's not 100% accurate, but it does indicate that the question probably needs to be edited for clarity.
Question that have this pattern
/^I (want|have) to do(?!.*but.*).*$/ are often question where to OP is just looking for code and doesn't have actually tried.
Questions that contains
((please )?help me|thank you( in advance)?) are often bad question, because people who add that kind of formality often to do to compensate for the bad quality of their question.
