in thread Newbies, trying to help, and where to draw the line?
A broken solution is a broken solution: to post such, is to attempt to raise yourself at the expense of others.
No it is an attempt to help someone. Suggesting such is like suggesting we should punish a good smaritan for failing to save somebody. You can actually learn from a "bad" solution.
Think about it. People here jump all over a person for really bad solutions. If they are serious about staying here, then they will think about it the next time.
I ask you to either not post, or post with qualifications, if there's a chance you are posting an ineffective solution.
Interesting choice of words. ineffective solution so basically if we are not up to your skill level, we should never answer a question?
Maybe I am just blind but do people actually answer stuff knowing it is wrong?
