Do My Homework

By BFilmFan ·
I have seen a rash of "Do My Homework Questions" in the Technical Q&A lately. Examples being:

Not only are these people lazy, they are cheap!

I can't wait for the demerit system to go live, so that I may properly reward them.

Homework style questions have been showing up here for as long as I can recall.

There was even a series of questions from a number of different users over a few days. Turns out their instructor specifically wanted them to ask a question here and get an answer.

I look at how the question is worded and the number of points offered.

I don't mind helping someone understand a specific point.

Still, like many peers, I do not like these blatant questions that could be easily answered by reading a text on the subject.

Well to me it is

Just Plain & Simple CHEATING and I do not like it.

I got one directed to my e-mail address from someone here that was obviously an exam question so I answered it briefly and simply and gave them enough information to find out the answers for themselves.

I do not mind giving a helping hand but I'll be dammed if I'm going to pre pair their thesis for them.
