dmmiller2k,

I must agree with you. It is quite irritating to see this type of behavior, and it's been happening here for a long time. Most of us are familiar with this fine chestnut from bravismore. Since the Monastery has grown quite a bit since then, it is not a bad idea to remind people of the message in your sig line: it is fine to help people with their homework; it is not fine to be tricked into solving it for them--BEWARE!

    As a "Troll", I can definitely say that I don't like to be handed the answer. I like to get in, break it down, and figure it out for myself, with a little push from more experienced folks. Point me in the right direction and I will figure it out eventually. Even if it takes me 6 months to figure something out, I like the satisfaction of knowing I figured it out on my own. I'm not necessarily speaking of just coding, but in life itself. Its a good feeling to know that you can accomplish anything you put your mind to with minimal help.
